Estania walked carefully along the passageway, torch in one hand and string in the other. She had said that it was to knit herself a wedding dress: a dress over which she slaved more months, secretly hoarding the spare string like a squirrel hoarding acorns in a hollowed-out tree.

Now she had enough to take her chance, to weave her way out of the labyrinth in which they had put her, the little orange trail marking where she had been as she sought to reach sunlight once more.

This is for Three Line Tales. Thanks to Sonya for holding the challenge and Philip Estrada for providing the prompt photo!

    Is she planning an escape? Then the orange string might be too obvious or is it a decoy and she has another route? Your tale is full of secret turns….love it much!

    Your story reminds me of the “Minotaur” from Greek mythology. Loved it. If you do decide to expand it, I love to see what happens to our young heroine. 🙂
