Today’s prompt for the 100 word story is: “No matter what you hear, no matter how badly you want to, do NOT open your eyes.”
Here’s the funny thing. When I first heard the prompt, I was thinking something more Indiana Jones-esque. But, then I was riding with my family-listening to a Peter Gabriel album-and the song ‘Intruder’ came on.
And I listened to the lyrics.
And my brain took off in a different direction.
Thanks a lot, brain. Thanks. A. Lot. The Story:
Amelia stretched in bed, eyes closed, darkened room silent. Her long hair cascaded off of the bed’s edge. A tug at her hair from the floor made her brace for her cat’s arrival. Captain Meowcolm Reynolds always batted her hair before jumping.
But there was no leaping cat. Then she heard his growl…outside.
She thought, “Amelia, no matter what you hear, no matter how badly you want to, do NOT open your eyes.”
But she had to. The handful of hair she pulled back from the edge had been cut straight off.
Then she heard the whispers from the floor.
In case you were wondering about that song: (enjoy 😉 )
