The engine gave a sputter as Geoff drove into his garage. He shouldn’t drive in the dark, but the streets weren’t safe for walking.

At one point he’d felt a bump and thought he heard someone screaming for him to stop, likely a carjacker. He wasn’t going to make that mistake.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. I love that you add the challenges of prompt words to your tales Kristian. This one is definitely on the dark side. A bump and a scream? That can’t be good! But it sounds like survival here is key. Well told!

    1. Thanks, Kat. I like to think about the prompts and see where they take me. I also thought the picture looked a bit like someone had been runover, so I wrote a story that was full of dark humour…. at least that’s what I was going for. 🙂
