The steady rhythmic throb.
Thump, thump, thump…the sound is deafening and quickens with footsteps above.
The steps pause, as knees drop.
A scratch, a bump.
The floorboard shifts and light catches my stilled cadence.
“She’s dead. I’ve found her heart.”
This is my 11th entry for #NaBloPoMo, #NaNoPoblano and the YeahWriteMe NoMo Challenge.
