Night at the Jungle!

The group of trekkers had a long day at the jungle. As dusk was setting in, they were in a hurry to get back to the camp before night fall. They had heard chilling tales about trekkers becoming a feast for the hungry jungle beasts. As they were scurrying along the path, Matt slipped on the mossy boulder. With excruciating pain he wobbled along to the nearest stone and sat down. On examining his ankle, which had swollen considerably, his friends deduced that it was a fracture and there was no way he could walk back to the camp. His friends made him sit under a tree promising to get help, as night began to envelope the sky.

    Great use of the prompt. I don’t think he makes it but I did just watch a monster movie.

    Chilling!!! Good one.. It reminded me of 6-5=2 a horror movie in Kannada, where the story revolves around a fatal trek accident. As I love trekking and did lot of day and night treks, I never had the guts to see that movie, but I read about it.. 😀 🙂

    Oh nooo you can’t leave the story like that. Does he survive? Do they find help? Does the monster eat him?
    Really well-written and suspenseful!

    You truly have the skill in writing Radhika. Particularly shown on this one, this has the quality worthy of a paperback! No kidding.
    You should consider writing short stories or novellas too. Or have you already?
