Today's #flashfiction Snow Blight

 “Well, on the tour, the film said they used frog DNA to fill in the gene sequence gaps. They mutated the dinosaur genetic code and blended it with that of a frog's. Now, some West African frogs have been known to spontaneously change sex from male to female in a single sex environment. Malcolm was right. Look...Life found a way.”
Barney And Friends* #quote

If you ever play “Red Light, Green Light” with someone be sure to shout “purple light” and see what they do. Anyway onto the flash fiction!

Snow Blight

         “Mirror, mirror on the wall...who has the ugliest heart of them all?” asked the Sorceress, protector of the lands and advisor to the twelve kings in time of crisis. An eye appeared inside her magic mirror and looked at her, it could compliment her beauty and dress, but being a summoned being it felt like answering the questions given to it as soon as possible so it could go back to its realm more important than any small talk.
         The mirror told the Sorceress, “Snow Blight, the witch of the Sickness Mountains is the one with the ugliest heart of them all.”
         The Sorceress asked her next question, “Is Snow Blight dangerous?”
         “If her and her seven imps are not stopped, then she could hurt the people of these lands.” Immediately after hearing this the Sorceress turned away from the mirror. She would have no one, especially someone as powerful as a witch, hurting the people of these lands.
          The Sorceress went to her cauldron and put her pepper colored hands into the spices of magic. She brewed potion after potion and prepared spell after spell. She wouldn't let the witch get her with any surprises. The last spells created in her spell room were teleporation spells and she sent herself straight to Snow Blight.
          She found Snow Blight in front of her house, an old woman with gray hair, pale skin, warts and mouth with only half-full with teeth. Seven red imps helped her garden. The garden looked innocent enough, but the Sorceress saw that the ingredients for incredibly vile spells grew in the garden.
         “Oh, hello dear,” said Snow Blight smiling. The red imps smiled and bowed too.
          The Sorceress didn't hesitate, she started casting spells, opening potions and pouring their liquids into the ground to summon incredible power. Snow Blight responded with great power, pulling out a wand full of dark power that countered the spells and nuetralized the light spells. The Sorceress was glad for not underestimating her foe. However as the battle waged on the red imps joined in and attacked by throwing rocks. The simple extra distraction prevented the Sorceress from casting a vital spell and she knew that the strongest offensive spells in her arsenal were depleted.
         “You may have stopped those spells, but enchanted apple increases the magic power of anyone tenfold. I'll eat it and you'll fall easily before me,” The Sorceress smiled and held the apple in front of her face. One of the seven imps snatched it from her and gives it to Snow Blight.

           Snow Blight cackled, “Now I'll be the stronger one and you'll fall with ease!” she then took a bite of the apple and fell into a sleeping curse. With the master gone the seven imps vanished. The Sorceress left Snow Blight to her eternal slumber.
