85/100 Days of Creativity: Sonic to the Rescue

‘Who are you?’ demanded Dr Eggman.
‘I’m Sonic, Sonic the hedgehog. And I’m gonna save the princess and put an end to your plans for world domination.’

Sonic curled himself into a ball and spin dashed into Dr Eggman’s stomach. Dr Eggman gasped as he was propelled against the wall.

Sonic quickly released the princess from her bonds and together they jumped out the window to safety. But the window was higher than Sonic remembered. He landed badly, with the princess on top of him.

As Sonic lay motionless underneath her, the princess heard him whisper ‘Yepes’. Game over.


For 100 consecutive days I will write and post a short story (about 100 words) incorporating a randomly selected word from Afterliff: A new dictionary of things there should be words for.

Today’s word:
yepes interj.
The last statement of a squashed hedgehog.

Tomorrow’s word:
smailholm n.
A holiday postcard that arrives back home after you do.
