Hut On The Hill

The river looked deep and tough to cross.

She had to get to the other side that had steep steps leading to the hill-top.

She had to get to the witch's hut.

She had no clue how to do so.

What would have taken her only a few steps, now seemed like herculean effort and a distant dream.

But, she was never a quitter.

She had to figure out which potion to drink to regain her original size.

The witch had shrunk her to the size of an ant!

She continued her journey to the hut on the hill optimistically.

Is it safe to visit the hut on the hill? What do you feel happens next? Do share.

100-Words story for Friday Fictioneers


  1. Never trust a witch! I think that potion restores your protagonist to her regular size but not her regular body. A giant ant should scare the witch senseless, Jilly, Sugar on the Bee :)

  2. Dear Anita,

    Any trek is dangerous when you're the size of an ant. Imaginative.



  3. If only the witch had turned her into a flying drone ant! Nice imagination, Anita.

  4. Well, if she ever wants to get back to whatever her normal is, I guess she's just going to have to keep climbing:) Great story.

  5. I just hope no one accidentally trod on her! Nice one Anita.

    My FriFic tale is called Solace!

  6. Every journey starts with a small step, especially an ants! Hopefully it is worth the trek.

  7. I think it was in the 1980s when there was a limited run "Ant-Man comic book series depicting Henry Pym as stuck at about a few inches tall in a wooded wilderness and having to survive without the cybernetic helmet that let him communicate with ants. Might be like this somewhat.

  8. Oh no! I hope she finds the right potion!

  9. What an interesting take on the prompt! Love the idea of her having to choose... "One will makes you larger, and one will makes you small" Reminds me of a lyric from a song! ;-)

  10. Oh that's great! But I think if I were her I might head in the opposite direction!

  11. Love the whole Alice In Wonderland fantasy vibe to this story. Great job.

  12. I like your imaginative and inventive take on the prompt!

  13. I think the any might crawl onto a shoe to get up the hill.


Your words mean a lot to me.
