This story was written for this weekend’s Trifecta prompt, which was to write 33 words about something that scares you or a character. For some reason, my muse went back to ancient Greece. Go figure.

What kept Cassandra lying awake in Troy wasn’t that they wouldn’t believe her doom of fire and slaughter. She had gotten used to that. But suppose they did? What might they do then?

  1. Ah, the other side of the penny. What might they do then, good question. And the possibilities all enough to keep one on edge. Great write!

  2. The unanswered questions that nag her…

    A sort of fear of the unknown! Awesome.

  4. Fear of success is the worst! You and your muse did a great job, as per usual. 🙂

  5. What might they do, indeed. Interesting take on the prompt.

  6. Ooohhhhhh That would be scary!

  7. Relatable even in this day and age. Thanks for linking up. Don’t forget to vote.

Taking the sayings,thoughts and themes that make us happy and ruining them with science and logic and then might come from that. Or at least some sort of smugness that's very similiar.
