The man with no face by catie 100wc

Sparkling, crystal clear water reflected off the maroon patches of rust. He walked in the entrance; it was silent in there; the green seaweed was as thick as blood. The man with no face looked down to find his legs covered in eels and leaches, he yelped with pain as he fell to his feet and perished into nothing. The dark walls let out a cackle of laughter before yelling “You should have never returned; we knew the guilt would overtake you! Our master told us so; Rest in shame!” There was a long silence then a gasp for air.

  1. Hello Catie,
    What an imaginative, mysterious idea for this week’s 100WC prompt! The way you use images like the “green sea weed was as thick as blood” engage the reader and build suspense. I appreciate your vivid verbs such as “yelped” and “perished”. I will not forget the pictures of the eels and leeches or the sensory detail of the “cackling walls”. I love how the voice of the ship reveals the guilt of “The Man with No Face”. You end with a wonderfully shocking last line.
