No Place to Hide

Aheila's Drabble Day! 100 words on Dread (bonus points for not saying it)...

It’s coming. It’ll be here before you know it.

Say goodbye to peaceful silence. Ahead lay endless days of banshee screaming and hideous wailing.

The slimy, stinky, goo-covered creatures that howl all day and yip into the night are almost upon us. They seek their prey with jars and flashlights. Lock up your food supplies as gangs of them invade your home. Take them to water or field and hope they wear themselves out so they won’t attack you.

Oh, no! I hear the high pitched pulse of the last stop.

No more pencils, no more books – take cover! It’s summer!

I haven't reached this stage yet. My little man is still with me all the time right now. I'm sure I'll have the same kind of feelings at some point once he starts school.

Nicely done! Very colorful and lively energy. A tongue in cheek take on dread. ;)
