This is my entry for FWF – Kellie Elmore’s Free- Write Friday challenge. Last week we all enjoyed writing the time and place prompt. This week we have another one;
It’s high noon. Sun blazing. You awake in a field and birds are pecking your skin… GO!
It took a while for Jimmy to come round and when he did he wished he had remained unconscious! Birds were swarming around him like something out of a Hitchcock film. He managed to muster the strength to roll onto his front. He had to protect his eyes from the pecking birds.
The mad farmer had obviously fed them on something they shouldn’t have had. Cannibal birds, he had heard of them nesting around these parts.
Jimmy mustered up his strength, began to tense and relax his muscles, he had no idea how long he had been under. Eventually when he felt a few birds fly away, unable to penetrate his leathers. He mustered up his strength and in one swift flapping movement he rose up like a giant. Ear piercing squawks reverberated around the sun scorched skies as the cannibal birds fled over the corn crop, Jim ran in the opposite direction.
He would have to rethink Operation Scarecrow, this old man had far more back-up than he had expected.
