Contest Entry

Tenley here. Dancing In The Moonlight is holding a writing contest! My little author wanna-be self just had to enter, so here's my entry! I hope you all like it. ;) Here is the prompt I chose:
Now... Here's what I wrote! Or typed... I used my typewriter for this, now I'm just copying it here.

     I steadied the wobbling ladder, and took a deep breath. "This is it." I told myself. The air was still. It was like the world was waiting for me to move, and I knew that the decision I made, to climb or not to climb, would change my life forever. Shakingly, I placed my right foot on the bottom step, and then positioned my left next to it. Then I began my way up, on the Ladder Of The Sky. "This is where you shall discover your destiny." The Empress's words echoed in my ears. She had told me this before she left me in the wheat field where the ladder was located. I was going very slow, but I was at least sixty feet up in the air. "Don't look down." I thought, but I looked anyway. My heart skipped a beat. I'd never had a fear of heights, but being in a airplane is one thing, being suspended on a step ladder in the clouds is a completely different thing. My legs went numb... And I dropped off the ladder. Plumeting through the fog, I spread my arms out wide. I'd never really had much meaning, I was more or less at peace with the fact that I was about to die. But that day was not the day I would die. I felt something cold on my back and I stopped falling. I stopped falling and flapped my wings. I had wings! I had found my destiny! I was a fairy. One of the most powerful beings of The Sky.

What did you think? I really challenged my self with this, I didn't want to write in my usual style. It was REALLY hard! I don't think it turned out that good to be honest, but I learned from it and had fun nonetheless. I'd love to hear what you thought of it! Tell me in the comments! Until next time,
