Hawthorn & Ash #2


Welcome to the second of many micro stories, ranging in length from 100 words to 500 words.

With each story we hope to deliver a little whimsy into the lives of our readers.

The story below is a blend of intrigue and magic that keeps you on your toes and guessing right to the end.


Sir Zane’s eyes narrowed as the man they were watching thrust his arms forward, and a gust of wind tore the house’s door from its hinges.

Ayleth asked, “Our thief is an unregistered magic user?”

“There’s no doubt about that.” A few minutes later, the thief left the house carrying an over-stuffed sack in one hand and eating a sandwich with the other. Zane gave his apprentice a sideways look. “And what have I taught you about untrained wizards?”

Ayleth grinned. “That they can’t use their magic with encumbered hands and a stuffed mouth.”

Zane nodded and drew his sword.
