It was his first kill. It had looked him square in the eye as the bullet penetrated its heart. Sometimes when the moon was full and a chill bit the air, like tonight, Kyle would see the buck standing along the tree line, staring. Despite his warm house, cold crept through the house. Kyle eyed the buck head that peered menacingly down on him. Suddenly, the buck appeared outside, smoke billowing from its snout. He picked up his rifle and aimed the barrel at his heart. Words flew softly from his lips as the bullet shredded Kyle’s heart.
The idea is to tell a story in 100 words. This week’s theme was “Haunting.”
