Once again it is Friday and time for story telling in 100 or so words by Friday Fictioneers.  It is hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.  I am screaming and howling out my tall tale of 100 words.  Do you know how stress relieving that can be?  Try it for yourself and see.  I tell no lies – no much.

Sarah ran, holding her swollen belly with both her hands. Stumbling over brambles and tree roots, she finally stopped and leaned against a tree trunk.

Catching her breath, she sat down on the moss in between the tree’s roots. She felt a kick in her stomach.  She smoothed her hands over it. They came away with wetness.  She lifted her skirt. Her scream rang out in the still air. Biting her lips, she silenced herself.

She closed and opened her eyes.   A giant slimy yellowish brown worm was oozing from her belly button. She howled, wishing this was a nightmare.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

    That is actually really close to a nightmare I had when 9 months pregnant with my first child.

  2. Nan Falkner says:

    Dear Hafong, This IS a nightmare! Good story and I hope she get’s rid of it all! Yuck! Nan 🙂

  3. This is scary and freaky. But I love it. This story needs to continue.

  4. Yikes – this is not the pregnancy you want.. But demons and aliens tend to be disgusting.

  5. Lily, I don’t think I want to know what happens next. I might continue the nightmare in my sleep. That’s really creepy. O_o It is, however, well written. 🙂 —Susan

    Oh wow! This is a great one, Lily. I wish I could have written this. Really well done. 🙂

  7. Oh! This totally makes my skin crawl. Well, Well, done.

  8. P.S. The title fits perfectly.

  9. Dear Lily,

    There’s a larger story here. It stands alone and lets the reader fill in the blanks. Nicely done in a creepy crawly kinda way.

    Could be the start of a bigger nightmare. Nicely done.

    Not sure which is worse…eating those slimy buggers…or having one crawl out of one’s belly button. Either way…ugh!!! Good take off on the prompt…
