Mondays Finish the Story – January 26th, 2015 – Quiet Time


Finish the story begins with: “She was unaware that she was being watched.”

Today she sat in the one spot in the forest that was hers, the place where she felt alone and in charge of herself even if it was only an hour or two.

Here she could sing to herself, write poems in her head, watch the insects scurry round her feet.

She wondered if the wolf might venture back. The bush was silent, save for the frantic conversations of the bird’s overhead.

Then she heard a rustle in the bushes. A head poked through, then a furry body. The majestic wolf had returned and stood before her. They stared at each other seemingly to size the other up. The wolf moved forward and approaching her, took in her scent and settled at her feet.

    Love your story! As Susan said, you could feel your story, which is excellent writing! Chills…
    Thank you again for taking part and see you again next week? Hope so! Be well… ^..^

  4. A calming feel, settling at her feet, sniffing her to see if friend or foe. I would love if a wolf came and sat next to me. Nice writing mate.

    Lovely. She certainly has a way with animals for the wolf to trust her.

    Beautiful. This is a really calming piece. I love the detail of the insects scurrying around her feet. 🙂

  7. A nice moment of connection! I like the quiet of this piece.

    A lovely story with a very satisfying ending. Wolves are cast as the bad guys in so many stories – fairy tales in particular. Your story was a refreshingly nice change.

    Wonder images; the spirit of nature and it’s affect on our souls.

  10. Lovely story, Michael. This reminds me of stories about wolves who don’t belong to a pack and are trying to attach themselves somewhere. I suppose in most cases a person would have to raise one from a pup to make them that tame. People must have done that at some time in the past as our dog house pets are now tame and related to wolves. Well done. 🙂 — Suzanne
