Happy Friday Everyone! Today is Flash Fiction Friday! Are you as excited as I am? Let’s continue with our story “Shelter” then.
Memory is jagged and fuzzy. Broken. Lots of screams.
I call them spiders, but that isn’t exact. They were everywhere. So fast. Cities were wrapped in dirty grey silk. Choked. Lifeless. We all ran, but no one knew where to go. Children cowered and cried. Families were taken. Someone yelled mountains. A waterfall. Shelter. We grabbed the children and ran. For so long, we ran.
The present swam back to me. Katie screamed. Lots of splashes. Megan and the others in the water. I struggle, but nothing can move. I look for Katie, but only see through dirty grey silk.
