Two Afraid

I love a writing challenge!! When I saw Vivian Kirkfield’s #50PreciousWords story contest, I just had to try it! The rules are simple: Tell a whole story in 50 words or fewer. I hope my little story brings a smile!

I titled it Two Afraid.

Monster hears noises
from under his bed.
Shaking, he takes a peek.
A small boy shouts in fear
Why are you under my bed?
the enormous monster asks.
I’m hiding from monsters,
the wide-eyed boy replies,
Eye to eye, scary and scared,
the two decide
to just
become friends instead.
