February 2, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a rock in the road. It can be physical, adding to a plot twist, or it can be metaphorical for a barrier or hardship. Go where you find the rock.
I couldn’t believe it but the rock suddenly sprouted rocky arms, then legs as it stood towering above us. In its hand was a giant hammer which it swung above its head. Mum was screaming, dad was screaming it was pure chaos. Then I sat up, mum was wanting to know what was wrong. A bad dream I said, sweat pouring off me. Out of the car window I saw dad negotiating his way round the fallen rock. As we passed to one side I noticed a long crack and a hand appeared. That’s when I totally freaked out.

Nicely scary asleep/awake loop.
Thank you so much…
Thank you Bee, you are very kind…
LOL good one Michael. I’m glad it’s not bed time 😀
Too hot for bed Lyn…
Sure is. 6:15 and it’s still 35.2 (although Weatherzone says it feels like 40.4) Not looking forward to tomorrow. It’s supposed to be 44 😮
Yes you could say it’s pleasant compared to tomorrow 😊
Don’t you just hate it when nightmares come true?
Makes it all the more scary I think…thanks for stopping by..
Nice timing to build the creepy suspense! Now I’m going to be scrutinizing every crack in these fallen rocks. 🙂
Lol…well sometimes you never can be sure can you…lol
I think on of the Fantastic Four is a guy made of rocks…but creepy to just sprout from a rock!
Thanks Jules, I’ll check them out..
Hilarious! I was wondering where I’d seen those rock people before. Thanks to Jules for letting us know. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by Norah.
