Watchers #100words for the #FridayFictioneers

Welcome back to the Weird, the Wild, & the Wicked for another 100 words for the #FridayFictioneers.

First I want to announce the winner of the Chocolate and Roses Blog Hop and Giveaway! The winner receives a digital copy of my new release Queen Bitch of the Callowwood Pack.


Congratulations, Julianne!

Now, on to the #flashfiction. This piece was inspired by Madison Woods' photo below and is part of a WIP entitled The Navy's Ghost. Lt Christiana Brickman and two other women have been kidnapped by terrorists, and are awaiting rescue.

The hair on the back of Chris’s head rose in visceral awareness. She stared out the little window of the concrete bunker at the moon smothered in cloud and held her breath. Someone or something was out there, watching, waiting. She chaffed her arms, trying to settle the goosebumps, but the prey animal within her knew they weren’t alone.
“Lindsey,” she whispered. The former detective scrambled up beside Chris.
“What is it?”
“They’re here.”
“The Squad? Are you sure?”
The feeling of surveillance intensified. “Oh, yeah. I’m sure.”
“Where are they?”
Chris shook her head. “They’ll let us know when it’s time.”

Thank you so much for stopping by. If you'd like to read the other Fictioneers' offerings, please visit Madison Woods' site. Happy reading!


  1. oooo..anticipation! It makes me want to whisper in case they hear me...

  2. "Smothered in cloud" and "chaffed her arms"--neat descriptions that helped put the tension in your story right away. Another terrific "hook"--I want to know more.


  3. a great build up of tension. Now we wait to see what comes next :)

    Here's mine:

  4. That "little window of the concrete bunker" to me. Visions of WWII. The Nazi's were famous for their concrete bunkers. Scary...waiting, anticipating. Will we find out more next week? Hope so. Here's mine:

  5. I want to know more about 'the squad' who they are and why they make her feel like a prey animal. Good stuff indeed.

    Here's mine too:

  6. Are 'they' goodies or baddies? Could go either way I guess. Good one, lots of suspense and anticipation here.

    Mine's at:

  7. Dear Siobhan,

    Do you want input here or elsewhere? I find myself torn and resisting telling you what's on my mind. Your story was good, a slice of a dangerous life well illustrated. Let me know.



  8. I loved the line about the prey animal within. Something about that got me.

  9. Danger, suspense and the thrill. This is good. Mine is here:

  10. I can't wait to find out what happens next!

  11. Very good sense of menace and impending crisis.
    My story is here:
