August 9– Flash Fiction  – Caught In The Act

Charli’s prompt this week:

August 9, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes  an act of “peering from the woods.” Go where the prompt leads.

I think this warrants a sequel to last week’s yellow tent-ry! Read here for the first part.

Caught In The Act

“Well Annie, that was fun! We should make these meetings of ours interesting more often.”
Petey unzipped the front flap of his yellow tent, allowing for a slice of light to cut through the darkness of the forest.
He stepped out and stretched, post-coitally, opening his eyes to the beauty of nature.
And stopped.
What was that?
Peering from the woods, he swore he saw the face of his wife, Susan, eyes open wide in horror.
A rustling sound followed.
“Come back Petey honey, we’ve still got time.” Annie’s voice brought him back.
Petey feared his time was up.

    Oh, yeah, Petey, time’s up! This did segue well from last week. And I love the use of “post-coitally.”
