Bring Home the Hay

Scott L Vannatter- 100 Words

Carolyn burst through the door of the elementary, killing night crawlers in the process.  She continued fighting.  Her thoughts kept drifting to how much the girls were hoping for some sweets this time in her search through the town.  Jenny kept saying, “Bring home the hay!” Carolyn had not been certain where the saying had come from, but she got the idea.  Now, there were night crawlers in the building going for the girls and Carolyn was not certain they would get through this one without injury or worse.

She snapped back.  A crawler had Jenny pushed to the wall.

    I always associate night crawlers with fishing worms, but I’ve yet to see one attack. Your’s sound much more ferocious.

      I think that’s very likely. However, if you have never seen one of yours attack, you are not watching the right movies!!!

    I’m biting my nails for next week’s installment.

    Chilling! The nightcrawlers sound creepy and dangerous. I’m rooting for Carolyn all the way.

      Ah, stop by my blog and read Carolyn’s page. The 10 finished parts are at the bottom. The rest of the page is all the snippets I wrote for the story (30).

    Dear Scott,

    Night crawlers as in giant bugs? Not enough ‘e’s in creepy to describe that. At some point I’ll have to go back and read all the Carolyn entries to tie it all together in my head. Good one.

    Good story with lots of action and a cliffhanger ending. I sincerely hope it sells. Readers seem to love this type of story.


  • K.Z.  On February 28, 2014 at 12:07 pm

    you certainly know how to keep us at the edge of our seats, especially with those endings.


    • kindredspirit23  On February 28, 2014 at 11:49 pm

      I love this and I do hope the long story sells so it sees a larger audience. Thank you!
