Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo.
Bellona’s bracelet broke while battling the gods from the Greek isles. As their armies retreated, she searched the blood-stained beach, collecting as many bracelet links as possible before the sun set.
Washing off her blade, shield, and helmet in the sea, Bellona winced as the salt water washed into her wounds — wounds that would be healed by morning with only faint scars as a reminder. Tomorrow she would begin preparation for the next battle.
Carrying the broken bracelet pieces in her helmet, Bellona abandoned the beach, heading off to Vulcan’s fiery forge under the mountain. He would be expecting her.
