Open to the stars, it appeared easy. Dom studied the snow covered scene, wondering where were the footprints. The snow was to pristine, there was even no evidence of wild life tracks. In Dom’s view wild life only stayed away when evil lurked close by. Dom waved his troupe back into the forest.

Footnotes:
Only a brief offering today, as I am struggling with a heavy cold. Today’s very brief flash is a snippet from a novella that continues to develope slowly.
May I wish all my readers a Happy New year.

A fine day at Mevagissey

    Good call by Dom. In my opinion, hunts are ruined when pure evil gets involved haha.

    Great hook, I’m interested to see where it goes

      Thank you PJ, perhaps the cold helped me write better. As I am on the mend now, I hope that my writing does not suffer
