Drink Water While You Can

FREE WRITING

Hell is on fire,
I repeat hell is on fire,
I say this because in my free time

The Duel

PROMPT: Psychic Distance

1.  It was midday. The two girls were having a duel, again. They stood three metres apart, panting in exhaustion, each glaring at the other. The older girl raised her staff as a warning and glared menacingly at her opponent. Her dress billowed in a breeze that her opponent was sure the moderator of the duel was using to disadvantage her. Raising her staff in defiance, the younger girl cast the strongest spell she knew.
