But victory comes at a price. The faster she runs, the more people she’ll condemn to death in the valley below.
In Unterstrom, only the strongest survive.

Ring The Bell is a standalone Dystopian short story about Mia.
I’m not always the biggest fan of short stories but I think that Josie Jaffrey did an amazing job with this one! While reading, I was a bit afraid that we weren’t going to get a proper ending, I wasn’t sure how the short story was going to end, but I really liked the ending and the short story in general.
I think short stories are always a hit or a miss. There’s usually not enough information or it feels rushed, but I don’t have this feeling with Ring The Bell. I think that Ring The Bell was such an interesting story and I really liked that we got to see the full story of Mia.
Ring The Bell was such a good Dystopian short story and I really liked reading it. I think I’d definitely read a full version of this story or about this world, because the concept is so interesting. I had some The Hunger Games/The Maze Runner vibes, and I loved it! I really recommend Ring The Bell if you’re looking for a good Dystopian short story!
