Three Things Challenge, the words are: headless, sleeping, mountain.
It was while sleeping on Sleeping Mountain that I encountered the headless horseman.
It had been an arduous day, uphill all the way.
Rest was screaming at me to give it a go, and so I fell into my sleeping bag and drifted off.
It was sometime later when I was awoken by the sound of a horse galloping my way. It came closer and closer, and I became frightened at the intrusion into my camp. Soon under the light of the silvery moon, I made out the approaching horse. The rider was encased in a black robe, but as it came closer, I could see there was no head upon the rider’s shoulders.
As he drew level with my camp, the horse reared, and I could see the silver horseshoes against the night sky.
It then came to a complete stop, and the rider appeared to be looking at me, at least it would have if it had a head.
Then the rider raised an arm and pointed to the west and rode off. As the dust settled the atmosphere on the mountain returned to its sleeping self.
I wondered if upon my return my grandchildren would believe what I had just seen.

Interesting. Why did the headless horseman spare him?
I think he was stuck in a reoccurring loop….though I’m sure the sleeper would have gotten much more sleep.
They’ll never believe it 🙂
Ha we shall see 😁
I love the headless horseman!
Thanks so much
Seeing anything headless is a shocker that nobody believes!
Could give you nightmares
