Visual Dare - Clarity

I missed the deadline on this one, but another compelling photo from Visual Dare meant I still have to write. Plus the edges of the story kept creeping in every time I saw the picture.

Either backwards or forwards it was going to be a struggle. She couldn’t see far in either direction so couldn’t be sure of her options. She didn’t know which way would be quicker or more fruitful, and was scared to risk either one until she could feel more sure.

She hoped for some clarity as she clung to the relative safety of her location, hoping that it wouldn’t be long before a solution appeared through the mists.
