Trifextra: Rule of Three

“How did you know?”  They inspected the gruesome heap that was all that remained of their captor.

She grimaced.  “Demons are tricky.  They hate wizards.”  A pause.  “And he drew the sigil backward.”


Some weekend fiction fun with Trifecta Writing Challenge‘s Trifextra prompt.  This weekend calls for 33 words using the Rule of Three:  writing principle that asserts that, in writing, groups of three have the most impact.  Thanks for reading!
