As Carolyn’s tale winds to a close, I thank Lillie McFerrin at Five Sentence Fiction for this week’s one-word prompt, “misunderstanding“, as it has allowed me to continue my tale in snippets.  Find the entire story in ten parts (the last part, eleven, will be posted next Tuesday night) on Carolyn’s page to the left of this post.  After reading my entry, click > HERE < for the rest of the stories… Enjoy!!!

Five Sentence Fiction

Misunderstanding

Scott L Vannatter

Carolyn pushed the dead night crawler out of the way and ran to Jenny’s aid as the last of the creatures brought his teeth down toward her throat, forcing Carolyn to act on instinct as a mother and protector.

She brought her knife up for the kill strike, but had to get the thing’s teeth away from Jenny so there were no scratches, bites, or other marks which drew blood and could turn the young girl into a night crawler.

She knew she was not going to make it in time and stay safe so she did what she knew had to be done and grabbed the horrid thing by the jaw putting her own hand in its mouth and feeling the teeth sink into her fingers.

Plunging the hunting knife deep into the skull of the creature, Carolyn had to ignore the pain and the blood on her hands as she searched the crying girl’s skin for puncture marks and found none.

Jenny saw the blood and bites on Carolyn’s hand and started screaming, causing Carolyn to calm the girl down and make absolutely certain the teen did not misunderstand; she had to make her know she was not to blame for what was to come.
