Darkness

Darkness was all around, a ghostly silence reigned in the skies. It was the calm before the storm, and the stars were all blinded, crickets chirped all around the forest, they seemed very excited, something was not right. Suddenly came a flash in the sky, and moments later came the thunder. It had begun. The winds picked up motion and the drops started falling, the leaves started to rustle wildly. The thunder continued and the rain picked up. The tempest had broken. All hell had broken loose and it just kept getting darker by the passing hour. The night seemed to be endless. From the depths of the forest came a bone chilling howl, the wolves were hungry, nature was making a horror movie. But something else was hungry as well. Something was lurking in the shadows, hiding in caves and holes, coming out in the night to satisfy its belly. Looked like today’s special was going to be K-9 Kajun. The monstrosity had come out into the open, it had smelt blood. The wolf sensed danger too and ran for safety, having the least idea that it was too late to run for cover, his fate had been sealed, he was going to end up at the plate, face up or face down was all that mattered. The creature sighted the wolf and it looked that it was going to devour it in one gulp. It made its move and leaped over its prey. The wolf, was now looking at the last thing it would ever see, the blood-curdling green eyes of his devourer. The rest was all darkness...
