The Warlock's Wand

The fog was thick1. The girl2 approached the tower3 slowly.

The witching hour4 was near and her lanterns5 were running low.

Her friends6 had been lost to the journey long ago. To give up now would mean they died for nothing.

Their mission had been to deliver7 the warlock’s wand to the tower and break the curse.

But a terrible demon pursued them and took them one by one.

Now, only she remained. She steadied herself and moved forward.

Backstage, Murray waited at the control panel.

The monster came out of hiding and chased the girl around the stage. It cornered her and drew near.

Murray flipped the switch8, releasing the Deus Ex Mechina9. A few minutes later, the crowd applauded as the curtain closed.
