100 Word Story – Death in Moonlight (Part Two)

The constant struggle of one’s life is the constant fight for their life. Whether it’s the search for the most luxurious of items to ease their pain, removing poison from a deadly creature to eat for sustenance, or on the literal brink of death from injury, a person’s life is always fighting for something.

In this case, these women were trapped in a horrific game where there was only one prize at the end. They would have to use every tactic they could, avoid any threats, and fight as they tried to escape with ultimate prize: their lives. The faintest slip of the finger, a single misstep, or making the slightest of noise would bring disaster upon them.

Will they be able to escape…?

If I made even the slightest of mistakes, I knew I wouldn’t make it out alive. But I had to take the chance.

I carefully reached my hand down and tapped the spring in the contraption, managing to pull my hand out before getting caught in the bear trap.

“Got it,” I said, rushing over to help Nancy repair the faulty generator. Unsure of how exactly to fix it, I went to a side and started pulling random levers and switches, hoping it would start up.

I pulled the wrong one and the generator backfired, making a loud explosion sound.
