Home of a mother, wife, writer

Another short one today. Was shooting for 100 words, but went a bit over again. This is a continuation of Day 16’s story, “The Monster“.

“Here!” I grabbed her and pulled her down behind the wall, sheltering her. I could feel her shaking. “It’s going to be okay. I won’t let anything hurt you. I promise.”
“They were right behind us. They’ll catch us.”
I crouched in front of her. “Not if you do as I tell you. I was brought here to protect you. That’s exactly what I’m going to do. Okay?”
After a moment, she nodded. I took her hand again. They were closing in. “On three, we’ll run again. Trust me, okay?”
She nodded. I counted to three. I kept her tucked against me as we fled from the monsters masquerading as parents.
