The Mighty Pen #19

The Mighty Pen flash fiction contest is a just for fun writing contest (inspired by my wonderful husband). I post the beginning of a story – and you post an end! I will choose a winner and several honorable mentions. The contest is open until Saturday night and the winner is announced on Sunday where I feature them on my blog. Check out past winners on the tab above.



Note: This is a family friendly blog – so please keep it PG rated. Thanks!


The Beginning

Icy cold fingers closed around her mouth, blocking the scream creeping up from inner depths. A dark voice whispered in her ear, “don’t move…”

    Kerry didn't need telling twice. She froze, terrified. She could smell him, beer and sweat. He was probably one of the homeless guys who made this alley his home.

    "Do you have a phone?" He rasped in her ear.
    Still too frightened to speak she could only nod. Without being asked, she slid her hand into her pocket and extracted it. He grabbed it from her. She heard buttons being pressed, then a pause.
    "Yes, hello," his voice was low. "Police please. We've found the tiger that escaped from the zoo."
