A thump in the night

Thump.  Her eyes pop open.

Thump.  Frantic fumbling for what he left her for protection.

Her door opens silently.

She fires.  Thump.

She creeps to the doorway.

Gazing into her beloved’s glazed eyes.

Trifecta Writing Challenge : Week ten


About KimB

I am a mommy to 3 wild and wonderful boys, wife to my husband. I am a stay-at-home mommy, who would like to work if the perfect job came along. Trying to find a way to make money from home so we can have more of the "wants" not just the "needs". We live in the sort of-country and have a pretty big garden, but no animals, except one small, dark, and furry dacshund.
