Bewitched by JK Candlen – Weekend Writing Warriors #11 April 5, 2015

Last week we left Carol freezing in the woods alone at night. But is she really all by herself? You’ll have to keep reading to find out.

I added a few more sentences so the snippet made sense. I hope you don’t mind. And don’t forget to check out my fellow Weekend Writer Warriors. Enjoy!

 

     Carol spotted movement out of the corner of her eye. Trepidation swallowed her, it was a familiar feeling. She walked into the woods and directed the beam of light to the left. Why are they always there? Carol turned her head away so she didn’t have to see them. 

     The thickets clawed, reaching out for prey. She stopped and fingered the tear in her jeans and cursed under her breath. Carol stamped her feet to bring feeling back into them and frowned when she noticed a smudge of dirt on the tip of the left toe. Dirty shoes were something Carol detested. She bent down to rub the mark off but no matter how hard she rubbed the spot remained.

  1. Read this to my 13. He said, “I’m not sure what to think about this. She’s alone in the woods and there’s dirt on her shoe, and it won’t come off. It’s kind of creepy.”

    I think you captured that ‘something’s going to happen here’ vibe perfectly!
