The Drabble Day Challenge is a weekly challenge hosted by http://thewriteaholicblog.wordpress.com/ and it involves writing a Drabble (a short story of 100 words, plus or minus 5) based around a particular prompt. This week’s prompt was “Breakfast”.
I should have known better than to continue on the trail after dark. The manjak is slow and stupid, I could have slept in a tree for the night and caught up with it in the morning.
But no… I had to prove that humans are expert hunters!
All it took was one slip, one misplaced boot, and I was down. Foot trapped between two rocks. I considered the options: sit here and hope for rescue or cut off my foot. I went with option number one.
As the sky begins to turn grey, I hear the snuffling sound of shredaxes waking up.
