Flash Fiction: Boots

Find the prequel here-

Part 1- Twittering Tale: Campfire

Now the story continues…


It had been planned as a regular trek – A walk through the greens, pitching tents at night and enjoying a campfire. It never turned out that way.

When they arrived in the forest, something nefarious happened. Something made the birds unwilling to rest in the greens. ย Something caused an eerie fog to settle in. And that something disappeared along with the trekkers. I know not what that something was.

All we found was a single pair of boots. No body, no other evidence. Just the boots. Something had caused the originally brown shoes to turn into a sickly red.

      1. I have not read anything in dark fiction for quite some time, but I am a horror movie fan. I don’t scare that easily though I lean more towards the paranormal creepy ghost type. I can handle some dark imagery but outright gore and guts is a bit much for me.
