There was a writing prompt at the end of August on Wattpad to write a fantasy story about the Olympics.

I didn’t compete, though. I had too much to do and felt slightly overwhelmed, so I skipped this competition.

But just for the fun of it, here’s a flash fiction piece of what I could’ve written if I had the time.


Griffins for the Win

By Ronel Janse van Vuuren


The crowd was cheering. Everyone was dressed in their team’s colours. Giant dragonflies, painted in the different team’s colours, stood ready to mark their team’s place in the tournament.

So, I watched various versions of tournaments similar to the Olympics and came up with this. I’m not really sure where it fits into the grand scheme of things (a lot like my Dragon Flight story), but it was a lot of fun to write. What do you think of it?
