Her beloved champion. My attempt at hint fiction.

Hint fiction tells a hint of a tale with twenty-five words or less, suggesting a much larger and more complex story. It’s all about implication. The title – which isn’t included in the word count – is an integral part of hint fiction, helping in character development and characterization.

Mina clutched Hwang’s scarf, leaning into his chiseled frame. His left arm was extended protectively around her, grasping a sword, as ominous footsteps got closer.

    I have not heard of hint fiction before, well not with that name, so loved this. Great to learn something new. I enjoy writing stories of 50 words so this is even more of a challenge. Thank you.

    Thanks for introducing me to hint fiction. Your story is just a couple dozen characters and spaces too long to tweet, and I’m not sure how you could reduce the story. Good work.

    Hi Lady Sunshine, it’s no wonder it’s called hint fiction, giving a hint of what’s to come, and leaving the reader wanting more. Does this mean there will be more :) .
