Hi! FF came early this time, but I loved the picture prompt so much, I wrote my story as quickly as I could…
To anyone who wants to join FF, this weekly challenge is hosted by the super-awesome Rochelle, who gives us a photo prompt on which we are to write a piece of 100 word flash fiction. Come on and play, its fun! This week’s picture is by John Nixon 🙂

Here are my 97 words:
Elle crouched in the woods, waiting.
“The roots are coming for you..” Uncle Rob had driven her insane, whispering it over and over until she saw eyes in the branches, heard the leaves moaning, and the roots..calling her, always calling her to join them in the darkness.
When she told her parents, they had her locked up in that grey hospital, assuming she was dead when it burned down in a freak accident.
Gales of laughter and familiar voices alerted Elle and she stood up to greet her family.
Tonight the roots were coming for them.
