It’s Friday! And, aside from a new episode of Supernatural, that means it’s Fast Fiction Friday! Today’s TripleF is much shorter than they have been in the past. But no less fun. I was going to give background, but it is more fun to make you wonder :-p Remember, Fast Fiction Friday posts are 300 words or less. Preferably no less than 100 words. And I more than welcome others to join me in TripleF and share what you come up with!!
It wasn’t the darkness that scared her. It was what she knew lurked within it. Her flashlight and small sphere of light it provided would only protect her for so long. Soon, it would get brave. Soon, she would face-to-face with a nightmare.
She scolded herself for her fear; this was her job. She hunted down and killed the things that go bump in the night. But the fear was always there, especially when it came to something new. Something she had never encountered before. It was a chilling experience, to sit in the dark, as bait, and wait for the creature that had killed close to thirty people in the last two months to find her. But she knew she had to do it. Her friends and her sister, her team, would get to it before it got to her.
