The Antique: A 3LT


The dials whirled frantically; spinning relentlessly in a mechanical frenzy.

Held captive within the copper casing, an ancient power thrummed, desperate for release.

“This antique is a particular oddity,” the seller said, watching her young eyes widen as he moved the piece between his skeletal hands “It’s even older than the time it tells, yet, somehow… I think it was made specifically for you.”


Thanks again to Sonya over at Only100Words for this fantastic prompt. You can probably tell I’m partial to a bit of Clockwork! So this was a particular delight.
