Level 61 : High Grandmaster Sweetheart

That gold would not break.  Grunting in frustration, Steve raised his pickaxe over his head for one last blow…


…and instead impaled the back end of his pickaxe into the head of the attacking zombie!  Steve yelped, surprised.  The zombie staggered backwards, taking the pickaxe with it.  Steve glanced toward his ladder and found it missing!  The two monsters must've broken it, so he couldn’t escape.  Steve was out of options. 


The zombie kept staggering back.  He ran right over the far ledge of the cave and straight into the lava lake.  So much for him.  And the pickaxe, too.  Steve felt unduly irritated.  He’d used valuable iron on that tool.  


Now he only faced the spider, but Steve was unarmed.  Could he jump onto its back and kill it that way?  That was too risky. 


The spider lunged, and Steve jumped back – straight into the block of gold ore.


It was webbed with cracks from Steve’s chopping.  All it needed was one more whack to split.  And Steve gave it that whack.  On impact, the block split into a thousand tiny chunks of gold.  It was dazzling; nuggets of metal flew everywhere.  The spider was transfixed.


Steve looked away from the dazzling ore fountain.  He’d sacrificed his gold, and now he was safe.  Steve turned tail and ran away as fast as he could.

Very well done.  I like the idea of Steve sacrificing the gold to get to safety, and it's very well written.  ;)

Thanks so much!!  It probably could have been quite a bit better if I had been allowed to use more words, hah.  But if you like my writing, it'll please you to know that I'm currently working on an actual book (not a short story).  c;

Excellent grammar, nice suspense- I like it! The only problem is that I've read a few others with similar story arcs..

Thank you!! Yeah, it was a bit hard to come up with an original story with such few words. There's a very fine line between original and absolutely ridiculous. (I've accidentally crossed that line many times before.)
buuut ladnig on goldoer does notin?!??! Jk, Great story! :D

I hope so too. Reminds me of this one time I put myself into Hardcore mode, and guess what? I spawned DIRECTLY in front of a Witch Hut. Not a good day for HC, never tried it again. xD
Nice job!

Thanks, haha!  It was a real challenge to get this under 250 words; that's why it's a little sloppy.  Originally it ended up being 278 or something.  xD
