Friday Fictioneers : 17th January

Once again our thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for setting our challenge this week.
You can find out more and how to participate here and also read other contributions.

It had taken years of careful planning.
Cracks started to appear from beneath, the soil collapsing on itself.
First a hand appeared followed by a second, then a body, hoisting itself up out of the depths.
‘Go back!’ he hissed into the hole. ‘There’s no way out! They’ve built over our escape route!’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I saw generations of trapped individuals, trying to break free. Only to find barrier after barrier placed in their path. ! I love stories that make me think

    Teehee! You tell that humorous story with great economy and skill.

  8. Dear Di,

    It sounds like there were others who weren’t successful in their escape. Short and anything but sweet. πŸ˜‰

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    What creatures lurk beneath or is this a zoo and the bear wants out.
