Wisps of eerie mist rise from dampened earth. Hooves thud upon it with rhythmic urgency. Droplets moisten my face as it cuts through the heavy air of pre-dawn.
I move as one with the equine being. Hair streaming behind, a shining blonde mane. Adrenaline surging, I lurch toward the glimmering gold horizon.
A glance behind, darkness pursues like a sinister beast.
What am I fleeing from? What am I drawn to?
Raucous birdsong jolts my being.
With eyes open wide, heart pounding and beads of sweat upon my forehead, I glance furtively to the right… The alarm shatters my slumber!
A “drabble” (also known as a “100 word story”), is a short work of fiction, exactly one hundred words in length.
This is my first ever attempt, and I had so much fun!
I would love your feedback… Did I take you there? Were you in the moment? When your morning alarm has gone off, have you been there too? 😊
