No turning back – Friday Fictioneers

Friday Fictioneers is a weekly group hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction.  Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group.  It’s a great way to get involved in writing.

No turning back

They were there again.  Watching.

 I walked to the door, trying not to show that I was aware of them.  I let myself in and closed it quietly.

 “Still there?” Pyro asked.  I nodded.  “No alternative,” he said.  “We must leave now”.

 He was wrapped in several layers of garments to disguise himself.  He threw a hooded cloak round his shoulders and bent low over a walking stick.

 There was no way of knowing if our departure was observed.  I fixed my gaze on the path ahead.  We said nothing, exchanged no glances.  We knew what we had to do.
