Memento mori – Friday Fictioneers

It’s time to write another piece for Friday Fictioneers!  Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who hosts this venture.  Each week Rochelle 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.

Memento mori

He followed the track through the gloom of the forest, pushing through the jealous branches that guarded the secrets within.  The angry waters of the stream offered him no opportunity to cross and he came to an abrupt halt.  As he turned to get his bearings, he heard a sound of smothered weeping and the words, “Go back, go back!” whispering through the grass.

He turned, frustrated, as nature conspired to hinder his progress, then reeled as something struck him on the head.

The last thing he saw was a flash through the trees as he fell to the ground.
