Daily Prompt: Talisman

via Daily Prompt: Talisman

I searched all my writing, easily done with search functions, and found that I had never used the word ‘talisman’. But thesaurus to the rescue, I have used the word ‘amulet’. This is from an unfinished work, currently entitled “Coffee Shop”:

Knowing his purpose, Heathcliff stood and went to the tent. He grabbed the backpack full of clothing and slung it onto his back. He slipped his amulet from around his neck and wrapped the chain around his left hand. He knelt beside Princess Leona and touched her bare arm that was sticking out from the sleeping bag. Heathcliff took slow breaths, closed his eyes and recited the spell that would take them both home.
