THE DOOM OF ANTONY’S LEGIONS. (Micro Fiction)

General Antony,

Scouting was proceeding as normal before we reached the Alps where we were descended upon. There was no army as we had initially thought, but rather a creature of some strange and unimaginable horror up in the mountains slowly moving down. The creature resembled a sinking face, illuminated by light, with a mass of writhing tentacles underneath.

Lucius bravely charged up the mountain to meet the foe and we saw a flash of light shortly after he left camp; Lucius hasn’t been seen since. We have abandoned our position; turn around, the doom of the legions is near.

By Taylor Thompson.

A short piece I wrote for a writing competition where all sentences must end with prepositions and the word count must be 100 words or under.
