Bone Pile

Bone Pile

A Chapter by Dave Brown



It was very late

Black all around

Thick tall, black trees

Somehow, I’d become disoriented

Couldn’t figure out where I was

Everything looked different

Having no light I fumbled on

Well off the trail now

Staggering over, downed branches

Pushing heavy, hanging branches aside

That slapped and slashed my face

I stumbled, tripped and fell

Into what at first felt like bones

I felt around and there were more

They were bones

Of all different sizes

And scattered parts of ribcages

There were broken shin sized bones

And at least two damaged skulls

I lay still, quietly stunned

What had I stumbled upon

Then a noise

Something large crushing branches

Fear gripped me

I was afraid to breath

My heart was thumping

How could it not hear the beating

Then, yellow slits looked down at me

A huge hairy arm reached out

And too soon

I became more bones added to the pile

Dear Dave, I wonder now as it is Nov 1st whether this will be the last of the halloweeny's for another year. I have to congratulate you on an excellent innings and thoroughly delighting and entertaining us all with your tales of gore and fear. Happy Sunday :)

The recycling business is quite lucrative i hear. I wonder how much he makes 🤔
Now you're just showing off! You ole pile of bones! Nobody, and I mean, NOBODY could keep pace with your amazingly prolific spew of Halloween ideas to write about this year. I think I'll take next year off becuz I'm exhausted trying to come up with new Halloween storylines! It's time to move on to Thanksgiving & feasting & chopping heads off turkeys & plucking them (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
