Friday Fictioneers #7

I’m a touch zonked today, so while I’m happy with the story I’m not sure it quite makes sense.   Read to the end of the post for a special treat!  Here’s the post and photo credit!


“You know, this looks a lot like a horse path.”

“There’s no tracks.  Keep walking, brother.”

“This is miles away from anything.  We’ve been walking for hours.”

“It’s called a wilderness hike.  Where you hike.  In the wilderness.”  His companion sighed.  “What are you so worried about, anyway?”

He looked around, chewing his lip.  He couldn’t help but remember the anonymous letter in crimson ink.  Beware the wolf in human clothing.

“I dunno, Fenris.  Just seems a little quiet to me.”

“Funny.  You’re still talking.”

The chill made it up his spine, but the knife beat it to his heart.


Here’s the deal.  I opened up a little contest on Monday for a hand written Korean post card, and only two of the prizes were claimed.  So I’m gonna get three more prizes and open it up to the Friday Fictioneers crew, cause, well, you all are awesome.  To enter, just go on over to Facebook or Twitter and like/follow us (two entries possible).  If you already have us liked and or followed, share us for an entry of your own.   Easy, right?  These post cards are worth it, I promise.

I’ll do a random number generator on Sunday or Monday to pick the winners (four of them)!

Edit:  I can’t get the linky thing to work… so comments classical it is!

    Fenris! I thought that sounded familiar, had to google it. Well done.

  3. And this is why people don’t survive horror movies — they never listen to the warnings. A dark humor, indeed. (I can’t make the link work either, darn it!)

    Was his brother (Fenris) the wolf in human clothing?
    Not sure I got that part, but it’s a Red-Riding-Hood-like take on the prompt.

    So his brother killed him? Did I read that right? Was there a reason (money, girl, etc.) or just to shut him up?

  6. V.L. Gregory says:

    *shivering* Wow! Loved it–great twist at the end and LOVED how you phrased the last sentence. Great job.

    Thanks for commenting on mine.

    Nice neatly written story. I like the ways you conclude it very much.

  8. Well done, and I’m so curious as to who wrote the crimson-inked note! Lots of little questions dangling now. :-)
