Microfiction May Day 7 – Orb of Youth

Orb of Youth
Form: Microfiction

It hung in the centre of an ancient Ferris wheel, radiating with purple light. The legendary Orb of Youth, the object of many a heroic quest, and just as many not-so-heroic failures.

Therefore the planet Carilon was not renowned for its heroes. Every princess had sent their suitors off to find the Orb.

It is rumoured these poor hapless heroes had all fallen victim to the Demon Horses of the merry-go-rounds that protected the Ferris wheel and the orb. Demons that devoured their victims as soon as they set their evil eyes on them as they fought their way through the mist-bound lands of Arkina.
