FFM 2021 16: Becoming Lunch

Today, I worked on the fast pacing for the side quest and thus my sidequest for this week is complete.


A dead blue duck on the road. Splattered blood, scattered feathers.

A predator’s growl. Quiet steps all around you.

You think back to your ornithology courses. You find nothing about confronting predators.

Cold sweat. Your heart tries to escape your chest.

The only way is up.

The growls intensify. Something nips your heel as you climb.

You wait in the tree. Hours pass.

You tire before the predators do.
