Run (Friday Fictioneers)

July 14, 2016


“Christ!” Terry thumped the wheel hard, blaring his horn but it was no use, the sheep kept coming. He glanced in the rear view mirror. On the plus side, the sheep had stopped everyone. Including the car of thugs right behind him. Terry knew it was only a matter of time before they jumped out and started shooting… and it wouldn’t be only the sheep caught in the cross fire.

He had to draw them away.

Snapping his belt off, he pushed the door wide and dove from the stalled vehicle.

“There he is!” came the shout from behind.

  1. Is he a policeman?

  2. My advice to him: run in a zig-zag, as I heard from people who are into guns that shooting moving targets is difficult. Definitely an exciting story!

  3. Hope he managed to save the sheep…

  4. I think running against a tide of lamb is gonna be hard.

  5. the sheep had stop everyone – I think you mean had stopped everyone?
    It’s hard to make a clean get away when a heard of sheep is involved 😉

  6. I’m just sad for the poor sheep that might be caught in the crossfire. Run, sheep, run. Great contrast in your scene of action pitted against the slow-moving sheep!

  7. Dear Laurie,

    Interesting take on the prompt. Well done.
