I’m not sure if I should post this, i have never used these words before and the image I portay below is not one I have ever attempted before either, but I thought I would give it a go…
in response to Rachael’s second campaign challenge, the rules of which are noted below.
The Challenge is:
Write a blog post in 200 words or less, excluding the title. It can be in any format, whether flash fiction, non-fiction, humorous blog musings, poem, etc. The blog post should:
• include the word “imago” in the title
• include the following 4 random words: “miasma,” “lacuna,” “oscitate,” “synchronicity,”
If you want to give yourself an added challenge (optional and included in the word count), make reference to a mirror in your post.
For those who want an even greater challenge (optional), make your post 200 words EXACTLY!
Here is my entry:
The Imago Fusion
Feeling the fibers of the rope cutting through her fingers as the swing bridge shredded, giving way allowing the imago, the repulsive image to rise from the frightening depth below her, its noise deafening. Where the bridge had served her before now only a gaping oscitation stretched out and below, the lacuna beckoning. Hanging unable to help herself, fingers burning, sweating, pain searing through her body, terror in her eyes at the thought of the inevitable synchronicity evolving her and below along with its pungent miasma air, this thing, this vial thing waiting to envelop her. The blood dripped from her hand felt warm on her cheek. In her mind the imago fusion revolted her; she couldn’t scream even if she wanted to, no one would hear her. Why, oh why had she decided to turn back, what a fool she had been. She closed her eyes as the mirror image of what was to come seared through her brain causing her to vomit and she released her hold, plunging through the lacuna, the rancid miasma her last thought.
