The Glass Girl
I'm just this guy, you know?
To expand on that, I am also the following...
- A former ficly member who is 38 years old and is schizoaffective (depressive type)
- Into creating languages and fantasy worlds from scratch
- A listener of audiobooks & good tunes
- Always too hard on myself
The process had begun.
She knew better than to play in the Rhoka woods. There were evil things there. Magic of the worst kind.
It'd been many years since the town rose up against the evil Lord Bahlo but while he was gone, his curse remained in Rhoka.
She could already see through her hands. The light shone through them and made dancing lights on the ground that reminded her of faeries.
She was turning to glass.
Soon she wouldn't be able to move or breath.
It was a painless transformation so far. She figured that once the magic of the crystal weed reached her organs that that would change very quickly.
She wondered if anyone would find her. People usually were smart and didn't travel into the woods, at least not as far in as she had gone.
Her fingers let out one last tingle of feeling before fully succumbing.
She felt like crying but was strong. She didn't want the statue she left behind to be sad. That wasn't how she wanted to be remembered.
She just hoped she could serve as a warning to others.
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

Interesting premise. I'd like to know more about why she went into the forest in the first place, despite the dangers, and how she managed to fall upon such an ill fate.

Whatever her reason for going, the slow torture of waiting for the inevitable must be terrible. She shows unnatural forethought for someone so close to what I assume is death.

Due to that forethought, one can surmise that she went in with a purpose greater than to serve as a warning and be a pretty statue.
