Lost in the Woods
You awake in the middle of a Medieval forest. The sky is darkening quickly and there is a chill in the air. Luckily, you have a torch with you that will keep you warm. But as you light it, you here a monstrous sound in the distance that reminds you of the beasts you've seen in manuscripts. What else will your torch illuminate?
How your submission matches the theme:
Fire is one of the most valuable tools throughout human history, mainly due to its multiple uses. It can be used to light dark areas, set things on fire, and provide warmth. But it can also attract unwanted attention.
