Below is a challenge set by Lily Child on her blog: Lily’s Friday Predictions

THE PROMPT WAS TO WRITE 100 WORDS MAX USING THREE WORDS: FLUTE, PHOBIA and ARCH.

As a child, Pan suffered from melophobia. From the luxurious lounges of heaven, the gods worried that he would never fulfil the prophecy of becoming the god of rustic music. Thor thought the thundering sound of his mallet would help but he accidentally whacked the invincible mirror of destiny. Warping out of the reflection a pipe shaped instrument flew across the heavens, into Pan’s hand. His eyes sparkled with glee, examining the flute and his being glimmered as he played soft, captivating tunes. From that day on and for eternity he would be seen as the arch-instrumentalist.

WORDS: 99
