Monster Alert! – #AtoZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z


Photo by leoperezwildadventure at

We stood frozen as as we saw the monsters come towards us. If they saw us, we were toast.

But almost miraculously, they passed us by unsuspectingly.

We’d escaped discovery this time, but we knew our relief was temporary, no one was safe from these tourists for too long.


271 characters.

Written in response toย Katโ€™s twittering tale #79.ย The challenge is to write a tale in 280 characters or less for the given photo prompt!

This is also my submission for the #AtoZChallenge, and #BlogchatterA2Z. Today’s letter is M, which, in my story stands for Monsters.
