WonHundred Word Wednesday

Prompt: Was it a knock that had woken her?

Dannika sat up in bed. Was it a knock that had woken her? No one knew she was at the cabin except her aunt. She slipped out of bed and pulled on her jeans. Who’s out there? The cabin had seemed the perfect place to study for finals. No service on her cell phone, no tv, no internet. Now she wasn’t so sure. She ducked into the kitchen, took a knife from the drawer, and went to the front door to make sure the deadbolt was secure.  Just as she peeked through the drapes, she heard a woodpecker tap-tap-tapping. Phew!


  1. Got to love strange noises when you're in strange places. Everything seems so much more threatening.

  2. I was getting all worried. Love the tension build up and then something to ease me down comfortably.
