Glow in the dark. Sunday photo fiction September 13, 2015

Sunday Photo Fiction is a weekly writing challenge where a photo is used as a prompt for a piece of fiction using around 200 words.


Only a whooshing sound could be heard as the green glowing drop came nearer.

The two runaway teenagers stood as if glued to the ground. It was a fearful noise and sight. Dorothy, the older girl, whispered: “What are we going to do? Run or wait?”

No answer came from the frightened Betty.

They were not supposed to be here. They were warned not to take the route through the forest. But no, they had to run away. Everything was worked out how they would escape the dangers in the wood.

The floating light came nearer and nearer. Both girls grabbed each other, covering their eyes into each other’s shoulders.

Suddenly there was a muffled:”Ouch!” and a crashing noise.

Both girls shrieked and opened their eyes.

“I told you not to go into the woods!” said a familiar voice.

Both girls were relieved to see Amy. She also joined the runaway party!

  1. A good build-up of tension, Scrapydo. Dark forests are scary places, especially for youngsters who have had their heads filled with creepy tales.


  2. Hopefully Amy came to rescue them from the dangerous woods rather than running away with them. Great story Scrapydo2! Good tension and mystery with a surprise ending!
