“Andy!”

“Andy!  Game over…. come out.  It’s going to be dark soon.  We need to head back to the car.”

Impatience, irritation, and a bit of alarm filled my mind and my voice.

“Andy, please.   This is not fun anymore.”

A rustling sound.   Andy?  The breeze?  Shadows could not hide my growing uneasiness.

“That’s it! I am waiting no longer.  I will meet you back at the car.”

Flashing lights in the vicinity of the car.   I began to run.

“You have the right to remain silent …”

Why are they reading Andy his rights?

Why don’t they see me?

    Great story, Ruth. I’m guess the person calling for Andy was a female. And her name was Miranda, right? Ha!

  18. Oooo. This gripped me right from the beginning! The narrator’s terror is so palpable, and I love how you gave just enough description to paint the scene but left certain details open to interpretation! I’ve found these short stories tend to draw out my darker side as well. Though, you have the admit, those trees in the picture are pretty darn creepy. Great work!
