Wandering through the woods

Wilderness Way

by Ric Myworld

The author has placed a warning on this post for violence.

Wandering in the heavily wooded, Wilderness Way Event, I stumbled across a rickety cabin.

I yelled through the open door, “Hello, anybody home?”  There was no answer.

Leery, I entered the cottage, finding a simmering cast-iron skillet and blood speckles on the stove.

Figuring the owners couldn’t have gone far, I dillydallied, swinging on the porch past dark.

Finally, I gave up waiting and went inside, ate the stew, and fell asleep.

The whole house shook from the slam against the door. I sprang to open it, finding severed legs, vicious growls, and red eyes glowing in the pitch black.
