Flash Fiction – Mountain Lion

August 9, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes  an act of “peering from the woods.” Go where the prompt leads.

Mountain Lion

 

“Aren’t there mountain lions in these woods?” Samantha shivered as she pulled her sleeping back closer to her body.

 

“Stop worrying so much and just enjoy it.” Jack turned off the lantern and settled in.

 

Noises kept coming from beyond the clearing. Jack had fallen asleep and no amount of whispering for help would wake him. Samantha slowly unzipped the tent to peer out upon her fate. She saw the eyes peering from the woods and froze in fear.  There was nowhere to run.

 

A soft meow came from behind the bushes.

 

“Some mountain lion you are.” she laughed.
