August 9: Flash Fiction Challenge – Dashing

Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction –  August 9, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes  an act of “peering from the woods.” 

Peering from the wood, something got its attention. It dashed across the road.

Thump, thump, thud!

“Oh, no. I didn’t see it coming.” Sid and Cindy jumped out of the car.

“The impact was forceful. It crushed the front of the car.”

“Is the deer okay?” Cindy looked at its head.

“Let’s wait. It’s trying to get up…”

“It’s limping across the road.”

“it went across okay… No, it flopped and lied still.”

“Do we want to go camping?”

“The engine suffered the impact. Let’s go home.”

*     *     *

“Our car took the last breath getting us home.”
