Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers: Trail of Doom


There is a trail not far from here. Some call it Trail of Doom, while others call this trail the Trail of Boredom. Most experienced hikers typically avoid this trail while those who had hiked this trail would never return for the second time. The trail isn’t a difficult trail but it sure likes to play tricks especially when you think you’re about to reach the peak.

The trail begins with a grassy, shady easy trail. It’s designed to make you think why this is called Trail of Doom. Then you will reach a set of stone steps and signs pointing to four directions. Don’t fall for the signs, they’re gibberish. However, most people fall for the trickster’s move by ascending the steps and at the top of the steps, they will find either disappointment or a thriller. They will either going to face a sudden thirty feet drop due to a sink hole or a boring plateau. It depends on the trickster.

Anyway, if you are ever hiking this trail, don’t forget the rope. πŸ˜‰
