The Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo.
Lucy slept soundly in the soft bed, under the warm quilt in the cabin inherited from her grandmother. When she awoke, she discovered the light in the bedroom was not moonlight, but from the jar and the candle on the table: they glowed.
As she picked up the candlestick, stones lining the path outside the window lit up. She ventured outside, unlit candle in hand. The closer she got to the path, the brighter the candlelight became.
She thought she heard someone singing a lullaby. Lucy looked back at the cabin only once, then followed the sound of the song.
