It

Hello all,

I hope you guys are having a great start to this amazing week! I wasn’t able to write a post for Monday and Tuesday, but I’ve promised myself to be more regular. So here’s my 3rd story for the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge.


Today’s Describli promo is Fear (A Ridiculous Fear) and here’s my story for it:

I took a right turn and came to a sudden stop. I saw it looking at it’sprey. Black eyes bulging out and shining like thick lustrous black liquid. Skin reflecting the light of the setting sun like silk. It’s giant tail doing a sensual dance and it’s breathing dangerously calm.

It stood towering over it’s prey like a mountain in front of an ant. The pray was trembling, crying and begging for mercy. “Please, please let me go. I’ll never return to your territory again! I promise. Please, just let me go this time and I promise I’ll never disturb you again!”

I stood there frozen, seeing the intense exchange of emotions between a weak prey and a giant monster. I saw it move towards it’s prey with the grace of a water dancer. It moved it’s giant body like a huge snake. Stalking it’s tiny prey with hungry eyes and enjoying his helpless state.

I was drenched in sweat and my hands and legs started to shake. I wanted to run away from it and it’s unfortunate prey, but I was so shocked that I wasn’t able to find it in me to turn away and run. I took an unsteady step backwards and my sneaker squeaked.

It twisted it’s head ever so quickly that it might have been in less than a mili second.

The moment it’s eyes met mine, my legs started to melt like melting wax and my heart leaped to my throat. I let out an ungraceful sound from deep within the pit of my stomach, something like an animal cry, and it responded to my cry with a tiny tilt of it’s head. I was standing shocked still and was just waiting for it to turn to me and end my life but then it jumped and ran like I was going to eat it raw. For a second I did not understand what happened and then I heard my little sister laugh. I turned and looked at her.

She was giggling and said in a sing song voice: “Anna is scared of Lizard! Anna is scared of Lizard!”

Reading Her Mind

Here’s my second story for Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge.

This post is a scribe inspired by today's  Describli photo prompt.

Today’s Prompt: Reading Her Mind

Reading Her Mind

The sun is setting and the shadows are stretching. She takes a sip of her lemonade and keeps it in her mouth for 5 secs before swallowing it. She looks relaxed with her feet dangling beneath her in her white skirt and peach t-shirt. She looks peaceful… serene.

She unknowingly plays with the end of her braid with with both her hands, twisting and turning her beautiful brown hair. She is looking straight ahead and seems lost in her own world.

I ask myself again for the thousandth time “how can someone be so comfortable in silence?” And wonder how long she can sit like this lost in her own world for good.

She shifts a little bit in her sofa seat and gives me a small side glance. I don’t know what to make of it but now I know she’s well aware of me and her surroundings. She is just doing what she’s best at doing… maintaining her care-less attitude. Like the entire world can go burn in hell and she’ll be least bothered by it.

She looks so pretty that I just want to get up right now and take her in my arms and kiss her. But I know better than that. The moment I’ll touch her the illusion of calm will be shattered to bits and the madness beneath with resurface.

I’m just waiting for her “calm-phase” to pass, so that I can take her back to her ward.
