Writing Prompt: Day 317

317Day 317 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Take a quiz to determine your character’s spirit animal and write a story based on the results.

Shannon: “Why do you want my help?” I narrowed my eyes, unable to see how I fit into the equation.

“Your tattoo shows you have a butterfly spirit animal, and I’m looking for a transformation. I need someone who can help me with that. Someone open to consistent change, preferably some who craves it. You’re bored here, aren’t you? Come with me,” he tempted.

I smiled because what he said was true, but I needed more than that. “Show me your animal,” I demanded.

He lifted his shirt sleeve without hesitation to reveal a crow tattoo, and flashed his ice blue eyes up waiting for my reaction.

“I’ve never met crow,” I whispered, understanding why he kept it hidden.

“You may never again,” he smirked. He was very persuasive, but then again he could be using magic on me. It didn’t matter though, because I longed for what he could offer. I was sick of safe. I knew there had to be more out there, and I wanted to see it. “Yes or no?” He interrupted the wheels spinning in my head.


Discover your character’s spirit animal.
