99 words of horror (I hope) for the 99 Words of Horror Contest courtesy of Fireflies in the Cloud and the Flash Fiction Friday sponsored by Peregrinas. This is my first attempt at 1)flash fiction 2)joining something like the FFF 3)horror.
Feel free to comment about whether or not it's actually horror. *I'm* deathly afraid of moths, btw.
Under a rock might be a scorpion, in the rafters, a black widow spider. Miss Jenson talked about poison bugs in our science circle today. She didn’t talk about moths, ones with wings big as a bird's. I hit one with my hand; it scared me flying close to my face. One flew past Jeremy, leaving powder on his shirt. Kimmie had to duck when she went inside; she got moth dust in her hair.
I see them from my window, out in the desert, under the moon. Fighting over the limp bunny between them. I feel hungry, too.
