I’m really on this horror kick it seems.


Won’t have time to finish this until late tonight, but I like it.  (Still 8 words over.)  I like the title “The Skeleton Tree” but I’m not sure I want to give that much in the title.

The white root wrapped itself around the hiker’s ankle, pulling him towards  the hole  at the base of the tree. As he was yanked below, his last sight was the tree above: pure white with black tumors, smooth bark and leafless branches.

When the search party passed by, the wind was rustling the tree’s new scarlet leaves, causing pale white seeds to fall.
