After Dark - Chapter Eleven

A Chapter by lawrence bear

Kill or be killed


His horse, spooked by the beast in the shadows, jumps and Paul’s gun rings a shot as he tumbles rolling on the ground near the edge of the cliff; he quickly searches for his rifle hopeful it did not fall over. His searching hands find the rifle and while grasping it, he reloaded and took aim. The beast’s eyes seem to spark as it snarled. Slowly it crept closer hunching down and then it leapt into action, but before Paul can get a chance to realize what was going on.


A shot echoed finding its target, the beast bellows in pain. Greg fires from the tree connecting his mark, a stunned Paul barely leapt out of the way as the beast flip-flops beside him. He then turns and fires also. The beast lets out a wail of pain. Paul reloads and shoots again, another gunshot, and another, which ripples down into the valley. Followed by another cry from the beast, until Paul’s gun bore no more bullets and no more dreadful howls were heard from the beast.

OK I think you need a comma after "His horse" Also you start out with pass tense His horse spooked . . . and then it is present tense jumps, rings, tumbles etc. :)

hmmm I read it and THOUGHT I commented, but must have just thought it lol. It reads really well. I'd say you have a really STRONG "skeleton" to build this story on. :)
