Darkness

I'm doing flash fiction for this year's A to Z challenge, hope you enjoy!




Darkness


David hurried down the street, checking his watch: five minutes until sunset.
“Well, well, well, look who it is.”
David turned slowly to see Kyle and his gang bearing down on him.
“Crap,” he muttered. “Hey, Kyle, now’s not really a good time, it’s getting dark so I’d better be getting home…”
Kyle smirked. “Aren’t you a little old to be afraid of the dark, Davey?” The gang around him tittered.
“I’m not afraid of the dark, I just need to get home before-”
“Before what, Davey? Before the monsters come out?”
David felt the familiar stirring inside him as the sun finally went down.
“Pretty much,” David said, and Kyle’s face twisted in fear as darkness fell around them.

  10. Oh that's great. I had a funny feeling that was the twist that was coming. It was still a surprise at the end because you leave it to the imagine just what he turns into. :-)

  12. Exciting! I love it when writers utilize the dark. :) I'm also thinking he turned into a werewolf or some other creature.
