This is my attempt at merging prompts and linking my posts to form a larger story! 🙂
The chapters in the story may not link sequentially, so will keep updating the sequence.
I hope this experiment goes well!
This is the sequence till now: Flash Fiction: Bright Lights -> Flash Fiction: Hill Top (You are here) -> Flash Fiction: Buried
On to the story! 😀
See anything, Bob?
“No, Harry. There is just too much fog here. I think it was another prank call. Burning lights on the hill. What shit …wait. I see something. Checking it out.”
“I can see a decoration of flags here. Seems like some picnic or local event. No people in sight though.”
Be cautious, Bob and keep your walkie working. No radio silence.
“Roger that. Keeping my gun ready as well, just in case.”
Good decision. Anything else you see?
“Just the trees, rocks and more fog. Not a soul in sight, Harry.”
Call it in. Maybe someone saw party lights and reported it.
“Possible. Wait, I hear something. Footsteps approaching.”
Are you okay?
I’m sending backup.
“No need for that. I’m okay.”
I had told you to keep reporting in. You had me worried there. Who was it?
“Just some foreigners….”
