100 Word Challengefor Grown Ups Week# 131


Julia is expecting some sombre entries this week because her prompt is, …when the night demons visit… here is my entry.


Something’s moving in the grass by my feet. It stops for a few seconds and then sets off again. There is a sound, like an army of ants nibbling, every time it halts.

‘Fergus, did you hear that?’

‘Uh, go sleep,’ he groans in the sleeping bag beside me and turns over. On my own then. As I take my next breath my throat dries and closes over, I cough to clear it, and swallow the taste of sulphur. Raising my head an inch, I catch sight of the grass swirling.

When the night demons visit they ride on the back of a snake in the grass.

  1. Oh, this gives me the heebie jeebies. Glad I don’t go camping anymore. I try not to read these until I’ve finished mine but I couldn’t help myself and am glad I didn’t hold off. ~(*_*)~~

  2. Oh, my goodness. It makes me want to find out exactly what they are up to. Great imagery, Gilly. And I have fallen in love with your new header photo.

  3. Sounds like it would be a good episode for Supernatural Gilly! Well written hon. 😀
