Day 254 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Your character finds something strange in a secluded place.
Shannon: “What is it?”
“I don’t know,” my friend responded getting closer the glowing animal. I grabbed her arm before she could get too far. “Wait, it could hurt you.”
She turned back, “The poor thing looks scared,” she pushed her out arm toward it, tugging away from me.
“Just because it’s cute, doesn’t mean it’s not carrying a disease. Be careful,” I warned, but she was already picking the little furball up. It was glowing yellow, pink, and orange and it was memorizing. The creature looked similar to a fox, but with large ears and a bushy tail. The face was covered as it was shivering into her chest at the moment.
“I think it’s hurt, I’m not leaving it to die. Let’s take it with us,” she suggested.
“I don’t know, what if its mother is nearby? We shouldn’t move it,” I was always hesitant to tamper with nature.
“And what if this is the only one left? I’ll take the risk.” Apparently she didn’t need my approval.
Erin: The last key went into the lock with ease. I turned it slowly. My hand started to shake as I heard the click. Finally, I was going to see what was in the mystery room. With the slightest push, the door creaked open at a crawling pace. My first reaction was that it was empty. But then I saw it. Right in the center of the wood floor. A pizza with a few pieces eaten. It looked fresh.
