As the sun’s dying rays fell on the muddy expanse in front of him, Sasi’s lips curled up in an evil smile.

Above as the clouds turned a darkish hue, the brackish waters below reflected monstrous branches, their diaphanous leaves ala shaggy twisted hairs of some strange sea creature.

‘That’s one more secret buried. One more battered memory stashed away in the deep recesses of Mother Earth.’

Or so, thought Sasi.

He cupped his hands and struck a match. His fave Camel ciggie glowed in the dark.

‘was too late when he noticed a hand sneak out from the shadows.

  1. A frightening scene, Neel. Well done


  2. Creepy, definitely creepy


  3. Should’ve double checked to make sure – sounds like he’s getting what he deserves though. Good writing Neel.


  4. Sinister stuff here, Neel.
    Well done


  5. Dear Neel,

    That’s some serious creepy going on there. As a child I had a fear of walking by dark rooms because I imagined hands coming out of the darkness to grab me. Thanks for reminding me of that. 😉 Tis the season. A good story in your own write. Well done.

  6. Sinister, although it sounds like he deserves what might be coming to him


  7. There are a lot of sinister responses to this prompt. Well done.


  8. Creepy stuff Neel. A well deserved fate I suspect


  9. Looks like he’s grinning his evil grin a bit prematurely — someone has found him out for his dastardly deed, and will make him pay.


  10. What goes around, comes around? Well done.


  11. As his smile was evil I assume he deserved his fate.

  12. oooo – nice way to leave us guessing at the doom


  13. Was the hand that reached out related to what was buried? Perfect for this month.


  14. It seems like Sasi might be about to pay for burying his secrets.


  15. One evil man being done in by another?


  16. Life Lessons of a Dog Lover

    Very creep scene you set. Loved the twist at the end.


  17. The “battered memory” makes it sound as though he has killed someone. The fact that it’s one more battered memory makes it sound like mass murder. Brrr! I have no sympathy for him! Well written, Neel!
