Not knowing what to expect, he made his way into the dark of the forest. He was determined to find the answer to what had plagued them all every night this summer. The strange sounds and lights frightened his children; the howling of the dogs concerned his wife. And he just did not like the weirdness of it all.

“Don’t go Tim! No one knows what is in there.”

“We need to find out the cause. Honestly, I don’t think it’s aliens.”

“At least go with a group. That way you won’t be facing whatever it is alone.”

The group of men met on a bright sun-filled day. Tim led the group to discovering the man-made eeriness in the forest.

  1. There was a big party in the forest with all animals 🙂 Dear Colline, I can’t imagine what would be there… Actually I am living in a stressful and fearful days in here, I should have told something but I am positive this morning 🙂 sorry dear, but you are the writer and I really wonder the story now. Thanks and Love, nia


  2. My husband was watching a show about aliens last night and your flash fiction sounds like one of the stories. Someone went to follow the lights, but in this case, he was never right again. They beamed him up. LOL.
    Great story, Colline.
