[Flash Fiction] The Hole In The Ground

The ground grumbled and shook the skinny trees cluttering the yard. Under one of these skinny trees was a hole, gradually enlarging as if an invisible person was digging it. A hand popped out, propping itself on the earth. With tremendous strength, as the veins bulged in its arm, the hand pushed itself, and the man it was attached to, out of the hole.

Clutching his other bleeding arm, the man waved his uninjured hand over the ground, sending the soil jumping back into the hole to fill it.

He got a head start, but they were coming.

  1. Chilling! I read the sort-prequels and adore the world you’ve created for these fics. I could see this particular one working really well as a horror story, rather than fantasy, and the ending if steeped with tension, like really steep stairs!

    1. Thanks TUS, I’m not sure where this world is going to take me, but it’s fun to pop in every now and then to explore it 😀

      I didn’t see the horror aspect of this story at first, but I definitely see it now. Thanks for pointing it out! Possibilities, possibilities.
