Eugi's Weekly, Word Prompts

A very scary short story — right here!

Oh my! I have been reading here on WordPress who have confessed their blogs have evolved; let me add mine to the list.
First, being introduced to prompts/challenges, and then poetry; now, I am having great fun writing short stories.


Below my post is combined with two prompts the word LEAN from Fantango and Eugi’s Weekly, the word MIDNIGHT.

My story begins … ******************

Drenching rain pouring, without warning, looking out the window, the rocks set there in the landscape looked like a waterfall.





The darkness seemed as MIDNIGHT, too dark for noonday.

Shadows caught my imagination

Adding to the eerieness, the electricity ceased, while shadows caught my imagination off guard; being home alone at this time was quite unnerving!


Howling like a wounded Coyote, I heard the wind plunge against the house; the trees LEANed against the fence.

I jumped! I knew to keep calm is easier said than done.

YET!

Like a shot, the rain stopped. A few moments later, the front door opened, a voice said, “anything new.”

Sighing!

I replied, “just another boring day, mom.”
