Weekly Writing Challenge: First Fifty

This challenge is to write using only 50 words; flash fiction fifty.

In the half glow I felt a shadow bear down on me out of the gloom. My heart skipped a beat, hairs stand on end, sharp intake of breath, cold sweat.
God, is that you Bob. Don’t creep up on me like that.
Bob is that you? Oh shit no!

    Okay that was disturbing – I’ve come up with all sorts of nasty scenarios that could have followed that last line of this challenge and none of them will make sleeping easy. Excellent post.

      The first bit happened to me the day before when I was out walking the dog after dark. I’ve never been so scared before then I realised it could so easily happen, I mean become a horror story…thanks for your post.
