Mary's tale

It’s that time again. After several days of doing more reading than writing, it is time to get the fingers (and brain) working again. What better way to start than with this weeks 100 word challenge. Enjoy!

Mary thought she could do it. No she KNEW she could. After all, it was in her blood. She gathered up her courage and went into her father’s study. Best to say it right out. “Da, I want to go to the Compendium!” she said, with a slight shake in her voice.

Her father looked up from the scroll he was reading. He raised one bushy eyebrow, his long white beard shaking with an explosive laugh. “Don’t be foolish Mary! Woman cannot do magic. Even IF you are the daughter of the first wizard!”

Mary intended to prove him wrong.
