Closing In

Closing In

On our regular biking route, we pass by Wilmot Gateway Park. Clean restrooms, plenty of shade, tables, water bottle filling station, and this great playground.

As I rounded the corner, following screams of delight on the playground, a cold sensation cloaked me. The familiar dread found me again. Silent pinpricks eroded my resolve to stay; I could fathom only one thing. Run.

Run to my bike, get on the trail, leave this placid place behind. Of course, it’s never that easy once he gets under your skin. Slowly, steadily, the old woman turns, laughs, and the darkness slowly closes in.


Written for 100 Word Wednesday: Week 131

🖤 When I use my own images for our prompts, I post them on Instagram where we follow each other!

Are you on Instagram? If you aren’t, you should! We’d love to follow you there!! If you are, reach out to us so we know who you are!! Let’s build our writing community both here and across platforms!

Let’s get social 🖤

How to participate? A few guidelines as we begin….

  1. Simply check my feed, or search the reader, for the 100WW or tag #100WW, post each Wednesday. I’ll also be posting on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Feeds.
  2. Write your submission on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook Feed and ping back to the weekly blog post. Feel free to use the image provided or your own. Please do credit the artist whose image we use — Links provided.
  3. I have not enabled automatic pingbacks due to a plethora of spam messages attempting to link up. Do feel free to also continue posting your links and I will enable your pingbacks as I check my blog. Thank you for understanding!!
  4. I’ll provide a Weekly Summary, or Windup, of posts on or by Tuesday; take the opportunity to read and comment on your fellow bloggers posts {keeping in mind to give each other grace and space}. I try to read them all and post your submission in the Weekly Windup.
