Footsteps in the Dark #3

After some safe distance on the road, she glanced behind again and was assured to know she wasn’t followed even though the sheer thought of walking down a lonely road in the dark etched some growing concerns in the corners of her mind.

Her running now reduced to a walk she thought- “Where am l?, What am I doing here?” Her recollections was of no help. She purposely glanced around her as if in search of anything familiar but nothing made sense to her. She was faced with a stretch of an isolated road marked with long trees and heavily lowly branches along the sides. And that constant howling of the wind didn’t help soothe her fears.

If only she could find some shelter to rest her aching feet, but unfortunately none seemed in sight. About 10 minutes later even though it seemed like eternity to her, she heard the sound of a car approaching behind her. She looked behind and saw the flashlights getting nearer. Contemplating whether to wave or not, but compelled by hunger for food, thirst for water, and some form of shelter for her fatigued body, she couldn’t resist waving the car down.

The car stopped beside her, a man was driving with an older lady at the back. “Please can I get ride to the nearest gas station or grocery store? She asked them. “Oh definitely darling, hop in” replied the woman smiling at her. The lady seemed nice but what if they knew the dark figure in the forest? What if they are his accomplices? Can she trust them? Countless valid questions but her mind was too tired to process them. She will take her chances and with that she closed the door as she went inside the car, hence not spotting that hint of a split-second mischievous grin on the driver’s face.

Dark Shadows

Dark Shadows-
Sinister, engulfing
Seemingly overpowering
Distorting objects all around you
Sending ripples through your veins
Even the lamp stand becomes an alien
You quaver and shiver under your thick quilt
With fleeting nightmares and eerie imaginations
Your heart pounding, bursting through your chest
But… the flick of the light switch said to the dark shadows

…In response to our daily post word: Shadow

But Hope Rises…

Pandemonium breaks lose and screams pierce the still air. Despair springs to action and endurance is eliminated. Reasons fail the sane and all leap into abyss of blame and self-pity. Nightfall and nightmares assails the imagination.

But hope rises with the morning sun, it’s golden rays dispelling dark thoughts into the alley. Ideation rescues the bound and sets them free to believe in tomorrow, free to hope for their fairy tale ending.
