Write about a character who is up against impossible odds.
Your character doesn’t have to succeed or fail, they just have to know the odds are against them.

The Arena Of Hate
The arena is my stage, and a sword is my prop. At least, for today that is.
A sea of vibrant coats roar from the stadium, banners fluttering with provincial pride. I even see a few Valken’s in the far back, cheering for me. I wave, and they cheer louder.
Most days the arena is empty, say for the few students who are given clearance to spar here. But today isn’t most days. It’s the damn winter so...
Heir Of Thera
(Idk, this pompt was perfect for part of my story)
Juno fell to her knees at Solomon’s side. This man, though he wasn’t related to her, had posed as a father figure for the last year. To see him dying was like a knife to her heart.
She placed her sword down beside her, her eyes following the trail of blood that dropped down it.
“I know I should have told you sooner…but you looked so...
Some Day, Someday Will Be Real
What has it all amassed to
If you have to earn an empire,
Then what have I learned?
Am I not deserving?
Is there no meaning?
When I was younger I felt so certain of life.
Of death too.
I didn’t fear it,
Because I never imagined it might touch me and you.
What am I doing with my time,
The most precious resource of all,
When others have more of it
And have already gone so far...
The Impossible Enemy
Have you ever been in the backyard enclosed by a circle of your brothers? The feeling of anguish and despair as they close in on you knowing what is going to happen next. The unthinkable yet used to event in which the youngest brother always is the target. The normal wrestling match yet what I like to call “a beating” always happens when I’m caught off guard. I’m the youngest of 5 with the smalles...
Part 2- Allysa’s perspective:
I woke up from another bad dream last night. I was tossing and turning in my metal cage and making a huge mess with my water bowl. I hear one of my friends- Darius, insanely rocking against the bars from insomnia.
“Allysa, are you ok?” Kates voice said coming from her cage next to mine. Ok??! Am I ok!? No, I’m a prisoner, a test subject, just like my other 5 fr...
The system is designed for his failure - to sound the alarm as the first fifty percent achieve the standard set by the minister. Maturation, growth and development according to nature, die in the machination of levelled gears - like a flower determined to peek through the crack in a hot concrete jungle, he tries again.
He bites and then purses his lips, brows furrowed. The fluorescent lights abo...
Little Miss nobody
I know I don’t stand a chance,
I enjoyed how your sugary-love
Dripped down my lips
I wanted to savour every last drop
But that won’t be possible,
After when SHE came
I thought I had a chance to be the main character of your life
But after SHE came,
I realised I was nothing more than a background character
I wrapped myself in plastic for you,
But SHE had everything
SHE had a figure like a bottle...
My father looked at me one last time,
“Son, this entire match is in your hands. If you don’t win, we all get killed. Good luck.”
I was thrown into the arena as I stood my ground against the devil. 6’6’’, eyepatches covering both his eyes, sharp teeth. He looked like a Viking. I drew my sword, he drew his. The battle has begun....
I Can’t Win
I anxiously waited in the waiting room. My boyfriend Wyatt was the only person who know about I was here. Five years ago my father passed away he had leukemia which is a blood cancer. Three years ago my mother died from the same cancer. I came for my annual check to see if I had it, and they sent me for further testing. Wyatt was there for me through it all so far, so I told him about it all and h...
