The Scribe of the Vault of Orendathos won the February 13th Aether Prompt, becoming our first back-to-back winner with a conversation spoken under the light of blood-red star:
“Your garden could use some help,” I said. Artemis’s face scrunched in surprisingly childish irritation. I wasn’t sure how her alabaster features weren’t marred by this.
“I planned to hire an angel,” she said, her voice a mixture of piano strings and clinking ice shards. Then she looked at me with a sly smile. It made her nigh unwatchable. “Perhaps my new mortal servant would like to petition for the position.”
I was glad for the red starlight.
“What would you pay the angel?”
Her knowing look made me melt the guard rail.
Congratulations! Now you’re in the running for the 2019 AETHEREAL ENGINEER WRITER SUPPORT PRIZE PACKAGE! How might he, or possibly you, perchance win such fabled treasure as this? Take a look at my weekly Aether Prompts and find out!
