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

121 09 September 13th 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.


    1. Ha ha, yes they can give each other a fright without really knowing it.

  2. Boeiend. Hou ook van die misterieuse daarin.


    1. Ja, ek sien nogal hoe spokerig die groen dot is.


  3. Die les: Moenie weghol nie. Leller storie


    1. Dis egter vir baie lekker om weg te hardloop, eerder as om n oplossing te vind.

  4. What they are running away from must be a lot scarier than what is in the woods if they are willing to brave the woods. Great story


    1. Amy scared them. I think she was the one telling them to look out for the dangerous wood.


  5. Die storie hou ‘n mens geboei tot aan die einde!! Well done!!

  6. 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!
