A flash… a spark of vibrant blue amidst the rotting foliage… and my feet came to a screeching halt.

My heart starts racing as the 9pm news flashes through my mind. No! It could not be…

I desperately shut my eyes willing it away. Dear God… not here. Not again.

Slowly, very slowly, I open them, praying fervently… but there they are.

My trembling hands reach for the phone. I best call the cops. 

Suddenly a scream penetrates my fog – “Bring your shoes in right away.”

I heave a sigh of relief. Just shoes left outside by a careless kid. Damn… I’ve become paranoid.

One thought on “Just Shoes

  1. So easy to do in this time, right? It’s difficult not to be paranoid – particularly for our protagonists when writing 😉 Thank you so much for joining us again this week 🖤
