Escape

So it’s now my third week doing Friday Fictioneers and once again I seem to have continued Drew’s story. It has become my own personal challenge not only to do a 100 word (ish) story but to continue my story using the photo prompt. Hope you like it.

Drew stared upwards for what seemed like the longest time, almost forgetting the carnage he’d just survived. Even though the world had gone to hell there was still a beauty to a moonlit night, the lunar rays lighting up the trees standing high above him, witnesses to his war on the undead.

 

Bringing himself back to the here and now Drew looked ahead at the zombie still trying to reach it’s latest meal, even though it was impaled on the forks of the truck he had smashed through the wall with, remains of the clawed plasterboard still hanging from its rotting hands.

    Love how you painted a beautiful picture in the middle of a ‘danse macabre’ of sorts. Very well done, contemplative almost. I enjoyed it.

    Aloha,

    I can too well see the zombie wriggling on the fork. There’s an image that’ll follow you home at night.

    Nice job of capturing the calm (albeit creepy calm) after the storm. Definitely makes me want to go back and read the first ones to get caught up again. Well done!

  5. I like the idea of continuing a story using the prompts, sort of challenging. I definitely like Drew’s character, how he can still see and appreciate beauty despite being surrounded by carnage he himself inflicted. Good conflict.

    I liked his reflective moment. Nothing like a persistent zombie to ruin a beautiful pause. Nice work.

    Will you tied all of Drew’s story into one piece and share it with use eventually?

    Sorry it’s taken so long to get around to commenting!
    I’m enjoying Drew’s adventures through zombie-infested lands and this has a certain picturesque style, a poetry seen through a grim lens.
