the prey – horrorimo #4 in


She strained her ears. Did she leave them behind? She saw them entering the woods, right after her. The woods were not exactly the place where one could hide, filled with young trees, no bushes or undergrowth at all. Everything was covered in snow, to further help hunters.

She tried to hide behind those young trees anyways, hoping they wont start shooting.

“Get her!” was the shout she has heard when she ran into the woods. “She saw everything!”

Then the crunching of their feet on the gravels as they sprinted across the backyard into the woods, leaving behind the dead body of the young man they shot right in front of her eyes.

She was minding her own business, she was hungry! So she was checking out the neighbourhood, for any unguarded henhouse or easily accessible one.

The shot startled her and her eyes fell on the group of hoodies, the body lying at their feet, and it was her sheer dumb luck that one of them looked at her, and the chase began.

“Where did that **** go?” She heard one of them shouting from a little distance.

She went deeper into the woods but they were hell-bent to get her. Soon darkness started to gather and she lifted her head, the stars were shining in the woods, she howled.

“Come my friends, there is a pack of food for all of us…” she said.
