The pale man got up from his seat and walked up to the kids.

“Who are these runts, Billy?”

Billy introduced the two kids to Special Agent Perseus.

“This is Gary, and this is Roger. I found them in the woods when I was scouting. Their friend, Kye, was taken by it.”

Perseus stared at the two kids before turning around.

“Come, sit at the fire.”

Gary turned to Perseus.

“Sir, what is that thing?”

Perseus stared at the woods.

“That thing, is an Acheri. And it is my prey.”

Perseus smiled weakly as he drew his heavy silver pistol…

The boys gasped and turned slowly.

The found a young man dressed in a black suit smiling at them. On his hips lay holstered a huge pistol. The kids began backing away. The man raised his arms in the air and went down on one knee, making sure the kids could see him eye to eye.

“Hey! Don’t worry, guys. I won’t hurt you.”

Gary and Roger stopped in their tracks. The man continued smiling at them as he put one hand inside his pocket and fished out a badge.

“You see kids, I’m Agent Billy. You are safe with me.”

Gary spoke softly.

“Do you know what that face was? And our friend, he has disappeared. He was screaming, and..”

Billy nodded.

“Yes, I know that kids. Okay, first things first, what are your names?”

“I’m Gary and this is Roger. And our friend Kye is missing.”

Billy stood up and walked towards the kids.

“Okay, we will find Kye. I promise. All I need to know is, do you trust me?”

Gary looked at Roger. Roger nodded slowly.

“We trust you Agent Billy.”

Billy smiled again and adjusted his glasses.

“I have a camp set up close by, where my partner is waiting for me. If someone knows how to get Kye back, its my partner. Come, lets go to the camp. Its not safe out here. Just keep your eyes peeled, okay?”

The two boys nodded in unison and began following closely behind Billy, who led them deeper into the woods. In a few minutes, the boys found themselves facing a huge hollow tree, surrounded by perimeter lights. In front of the tree, the boys saw a ghostly figure sitting cross legged facing them. Billy ruffled the boys’ hair.

“That’s my partner, Special Agent Perseus.”

Three Line Tale: Weight

I stand on the weighing scale of life, concentrating on my dreams, goals, ambitions, and all the people that I am fighting for.

I stand in the blizzard of hardships, the bitter weather crushing me down with all its force and weight.

Now, it remains to be seen, if my willpower weighs more, or the adversities that I face end up being heavier…

Prompt: Three Line Tales, Week 157

Microfiction: Sheep

So, this is the latest sheep in our flock. Her name’s Tabitha.

How much does she cost? You mean, how much did she cost to create? Well, a million dollars, give or take.

No, its no joke. She’s a top notch product of military science. A harmless looking explosive device.

What about her wool? Who cares? She’s designed for blasting our enemies to smithereens.

Who do you think you are calling a mad man, mister?

Wait, are you even from the C.I.A ?

No? You are a sheep farmer? Well, this is awkward…

Flash Fiction: Unexpected Walk

“You know, it was unexpectedly nice, this walk.”

He looked at her with a quizzical expression.

“Why unexpected?”

She laughed nervously.

“Well, because of what I had heard about you from here and there.”

He narrowed his eyes.

“And what had you heard from here and there?”

She blushed slightly and gave his hand a gentle squeeze.

“Oh, nothing! Just that you are kind of weird.”

He laughed.

“Oh am I, then?”

She smiled as she hugged him.

“Not at all. I am glad you picked this path to walk on. These vines make such a beautiful archway.”

“Ummm..vines?”

She screamed out loud upon making the serpentine discovery, before running helter-skelter…

Three Line Tale: Pool Party

The pool looked alluring under the clear starry skies, catching the fancy of all eyes that gazed upon it.

I knew that no one would refuse an invitation to a party at my pool, simply because of its legendary reputation: The Helen among pools, if I may call it so.

A pity that the reputation would get tarnished soon, but then again, I think its a fair exchange for the elimination of all my business rivals through a quick electrocution…

Now the story continues…


The snowfall had finally stopped.

We walked through the icy white ground, following the path shown in the map. It was one of the only three maps in existence that showed the location of Log Town’s treasure. It was highly unlikely that any of the other two possessors of the maps were present around us. However, after spotting the ducks, I realized I had spoken too soon. These were no ordinary ducks, these were guard ducks. It did not take a genius to know what they were guarding. If only we can go around th….

The boys could hear the grating sound getting closer.

They huddled together forming a circle, their eyes scanning their surroundings. Their brows furrowed with concentration. The trio was now sure about it.

There was something in the woods, stalking them…

The three kids stepped into the woods in the fading sunlight.

Roger lead the way, followed by Kye and Gary. The trio were on a quest to retrieve their ball. The fading umbrage of the trees worried Gary. The sun was setting, and he knew that navigating the intricate forest paths in the dark, was going to be a task. It would be difficult even with the mini flash light he was carrying. As they went deeper, a fog began settling around the trees. It remained static, refusing to clear away. The three kids bravely held their nerves. Until they heard sounds coming from the fog.

They resembled the sound made by cheese graters…
