Monthly Microfiction - July - Firelight



    Lisa and Kelly snuggled together inside their double sleeping bag and watched their friends' shadows on the tent walls, cast by the campfire's glow. Kelly was grateful for this trip to Wolf Island. She'd never been camping before.

   Howls cut through the merriment outside.

   Hulking shadows appeared.

   Lisa crawled towards the door to check on their friends, but Kelly pulled her back when the slaughter began. The shadows on the tent displayed the gruesome scene. Beasts ravaged the campsite. Lisa and Kelly cowered inside their sleeping bag, hoping the creatures would leave.

   But then they heard the zipper sliding open.
