This week's Friday Fictioneers photo prompt supplied by Sarah Potter led me down a potentially spooky path.
The light drained from the sky like someone opening a vein. Our world turned monochrome. I shivered.
'You okay?' said Robbie.
Shadowy movements in the garden.
'It's just the wind,' said Robbie.
The night thickened with cold.
'They got bears hereabouts?'
Robbie huffed. 'You crazy?'
'We need firewood.' He went outside.
Minutes passed. I finally cracked open the door. 'Robbie?'
'Robbie? Are you messing with me?'
A barnacled shadow moved on the edge of vision. I heard saw-toothed voices and slammed the door shut. Heavy footsteps on the deck.
I waited for the door to open.
I hope you enjoyed this story and I look forward to your comments.
