a high hidden place

Back when I was doing Inktober posts, I posted the image of the eight of swords, from the Rider-Waite tarot deck:



I decided to use that and other tarot images as writing prompts with the group of adult students I'm working with, and that image prompted two very diverging responses. You can read both of them here, but I wanted to feature the first--a story told in just four sentences, but so full of drama--here:

The woman is from Sparta and she’s the king’s daughter. The Romans want to retaliate because a Spartan prince stole a Roman king’s wife. Now Sparta attacks on a sneaky tip and saves her. Sparta had to kill 650,000 soldiers to get to her because she was in a high hidden place in the Rome kingdom.
--Abraham Viera

The guy who wrote that, Abraham, is new to the class. I hope he sticks around!
