This is my entry for Bath Spa University's Novel In 25 Words Competition! It is a flash fiction, but a very short one, limited at using only 25 words to wholly express the extent and breadth of storytelling, creativity, and writing.
‘It is with words as with sunbeams - the more they are condensed, the deeper they burn’ as they says.

I whipped around, staring at the tip of the dagger poised between my eyes. Please don’t do it, I whispered. “Do it!” I shouted aloud.

Short and to the point, yet, leaving you with its mark in your mind. Well done!

Thank you so much for the feedback, FirePlague! I'm glad it left a mark in your mind, I had wanted the passage to be able to lure my readers' interests as to what may happens next.

The next moment wasn't even a decision. As the dagger moved forward to penetrate my skull, I instinctively ducked, swiveled into a leg sweep and took my enemy down to the ground. Pouncing on top, I proceeded to disarm and unmask my assailant. The shock flushed my face. It was my sister. (Dun, dun, dun.)

Good job, S.K. I think my above paragraph is one possible scenario that could follow this.
