Blink of an eyeMature

Creeping slowly from my home I looked for any danger before coming out into the open. Everything seemed normal, nightly sounds and moon keeping the shadows away. I took one last look around and then stepped off the threshold of my home…everything changed within a blink of an eye…the shadows surrounded me…I didn’t see it….but I felt it…crack of my bones...my blood…my life slipping away…  

I blinked…everything changed…

I stood staring down at the torn bloody badger at my feet, then I heard the growl of the beast and looking up I saw menacing wild eyes…then it lunged going straight for my weak innocent throat…

The End
