100 Word Wednesday: Week 68 – City Holiday


We stayed in a fantastic place overlooking the city.

We were on the veranda watching the city lights when it all began.

On the side of the tallest building opposite, we noticed movement.

Something was crawling up the side of it, and it was something big. Mum grabbed her binoculars and saw it was a giant lizard. As it scaled the building, it picked off unsuspecting people from their balconies and ate them.

Mum reached for the phone, but the lines were dead.

We watched helplessly as more people were consumed.

Eventually mum said, “Glad we didn’t book over there.”
