The Long Road into Night #16

It is the 16th day on the dark road, and you have killed this one’s favorite pet.  If you are wise, then you should not be so proud, of this thing you have done.  The night’s walk is still very long, and the wolf, was not this one’s only pet.  There are many perils along the road, and your fate is a fixed point upon it.

Also be warned.  Most do, but not all fates lead to death.

You are suddenly puzzled, as you stare at your hands.  A moment ago they had been drenched in the wolf’s blood, but now they are clean.  Then you hear the noise from the forest, and looking up your heart nearly stops. 

Glancing from one side of the road to the other, you see them.  The dark forest veil is lit by countless eyes that reflect the pale moonlight.  It seems the one’s pets, have come for you. 

There are only 15 more days until Halloween.
