Flash Fiction Friday

So... I know it has been over a year since my last post....BUT I recently joined a group of lovely and talented writers that should get me posting at least once a week (yaay!). It's called Flash Fiction Friday. What happens is each week we get a new prompt and every Friday we each post our 100 word response to that prompt. And don't worry, you won't have to get bored with only my ideas each week because I will link all the other responses with my posts so you can see what everyone came up with.

Here is this week's prompt:

My Flash Fiction:

The creature sat lazily in the high branches of a tree, picking its sharp yellow teeth with its long, ragged fingernails. A closer look would reveal gray skin long since void of any warm pigment and blood red eyes that shone with anything but humanity. Voices carried to the top branches, the creature tensed with excitement. It seemed the jogger it had been stalking must have felt its presence and brought a friend for protection. Silly humans, it thought as it swooped down from its perch. No one stands a chance against the ancient thirst of the Wendigo once it has found its prey.

The other responses for this week can be found at these AWESOME blogs:

Thanks for reading! You can find more out about the ancient legend of the Wendigo here.


  1. I really enjoyed the casual feel this has. You start us off with the creature being so chill, like eating people is not a big deal at all. Which fits the character of the wendigo perfectly. I also loved your use of mythos! Wendigos are under-appreciated.

  2. Gah, I'm so happy you're doing this, too! Great descriptions and great choice in using the Wendigo! I was like, man, I feel like the X-Files missed out in not using this creepy, creepy creature! And then I looked it up and it was in the first season :P (It's just been a long time since I watched season one, okay?! :D)
