100 Word Wednesday: Follow the Leader

Sam stared at the grotesque creature standing over her, meeting its sad eyes.

“Follow me. I know the way home.”

The entire planet seemed deserted, the monster could eat her here as easily as anywhere. She shrugged and followed.

They traveled endless years through endless desert. She felt herself change, her body adapting to each challenge.

Eventually the thing led her back to the sandstone temple and flew away, smiling.

Inside sat a girl, familiar as her own reflection.

She looked down at the tiny pink thing, unable to hide her disappointment.

“Follow me. I know the way home.”
