So here’s the story prompt that I wrote for you guys to continue! I would say try and keep it semi-brief so we can keep the story going, and I’ll have an easier time keeping it going from what you guys write! But I hope you like it and I hope you guys have fun writing what comes next!
Oh come on, don’t die on me now, I thought as a loud bang sounded and the car sputtered to a stop. “Of course, today of all days, this happens,” I muttered while getting out of the car. “Well, let’s see what the problem is.” I lifted up the hood of the car to see what the damage was. Shit, the engine is shot, there is no way I’m fixing that, I thought.
Well, that’s just great, I’m out on a sparsely traveled mountain road, at night, with no cell service. I’m too far from the cabin to reasonably expect to walk there. Well this is just great, I thought bitterly. “Guess I have to start heading down the mountain then,” I muttered as I started walking down the long mountain road. So many trees on either side of me, I can’t see a thing. This feels like the start of some terrible horror movie, I thought, chuckling quietly to myself. It figures the moon isn’t even visible tonight. Can’t believe I didn’t think to pack a flashlight. What idiot goes up to a cabin in the mountains without packing a flashlight? I thought, berating myself.
I should have wore warmer clothes. The wind is really picking up and there is no way I am getting down this mountain before sunrise, I thought miserably. “Sounds like the animals are out tonight,” I whispered to myself as I heard what sounded like wolves in the distance. “If this really was a horror movie, it would probably be about now that I’d start seeing eyes or something in the bushes on the side of the road.” I chuckled loudly to myself.
What was that? I stopped to listen. I could have sworn I heard something on the side of the road. I watch too many movies, I’m psyching myself out right now, I reasoned with myself as I continued to walk, albeit a bit more quickly now. “There’s nothing to worry about! I’ve been up on these mountains hundreds of times and nothing has ever happened,” I reassured myself.
Huh, sounds like those wolves are closer than befo- What was that? I thought, interrupting myself. There is definitely something out there. This isn’t some trick of my mind, I definitely heard something. “If someone’s out there… come out!” I shouted at the forest, but the rustling noise was just getting louder and closer. “Screw this!” I started to run.
I hadn’t gone more than two steps before I saw them coming at me. ”Oh thank God! Headlights!” I ran towards them.
