Something in the Woods #FridayFictioneers

Happy Friday everyone! The sun is actually shining this morning and it’s bringing a lovely warmth through the window as I work. And, seeing as it’s Friday, I’ve been working on my latest piece for Friday Fictioneers. Once again, a big thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting.

Each week there’s a picture to use as a prompt for a 100-word piece of flash fiction. Thank you to Lisa Fox for this week’s prompt.

To have a look at the other contributions you can go to the list here. I hope you enjoy this week’s stories!

Something in the Woods

‘Do you think something’s in there?’ asked Cath.

‘Sh! You don’t want it to hear you!’

‘You’re so dramatic, Logan.’

‘I’m careful. There’s a difference.’

‘Whatever. I’m bored now. See you tomorrow.’

‘But, don’t you wanna …’

‘Bye, Logan!’ She crunched off through the woods.

Sitting alone, he felt a chill now his friend had gone. He was determined to see what was in there though, even if he had to wait all night.

Logaaaannnnnn …’

He froze. That didn’t sound like Cath.

Logaaaannnnnn …’

The voice was coming from in front. From the cabin. He jumped up and ran.

  1. He wasn’t determined enough. Imagine having to live your whole life and never knowing. If it were friends tricking him, as James suggests, at least one will have to tattle.

    1. Thank you. What can I say, I see a cabin like that with trees in the background and I immediately think, ‘ooh, I wonder what’s lurking in there …’ I almost did my story from the point of view of someone or something hiding inside. Maybe I’ll still write that anyway.

    1. Thank you, Rochelle. When I wrote this I imagined that there was something in there and it was trying to talk to Logan. I find it really interesting that so many have imagined his friends being the ones behind it. I didn’t even think about that until I read their comments.
