Today’s Flash Fiction Friday continues with my little “Shelter” series. Not sure where this will go, but I’m having a lot of fun with it. Hope you enjoy! To read the last installment, go here.

Megan and the children pelted back through the crevice. We had to get to the water. I was fast behind the children. The buzzing grew louder. The sharp mountain rock on either side scraped my arms and back. Had to get to the water; safety.

I heard the scuttle. The clack of a thousand legs on rock.

Almost there.

Pincered maws snapped and clacked.

Almost there.

Little Katie screamed. She fell in front of me. The others stopped to look.

“Run!” I yelled.

I grab Katie and run.

Almost there.

Something wet hit my legs. I stumble, fall.
