Short Story King

The Gravedigger of Christmas Eve

It was a dark and stormy night. The wind howled through the trees, sending leaves flying everywhere. Lightning lit up the sky, illuminating the dense forest for a brief moment before plunging everything back into darkness.

Two friends, Emma and James, were hiking through the forest, trying to find their way back to their campsite. They had gotten lost hours ago, and the dense fog made it impossible to see more than a few feet ahead of them.

”This is insane, ” Emma said, her voice shaking with fear. ”We need to find shelter, now. ”

James nodded, his eyes scanning the area frantically. ”I think I see something up ahead, ” he said, pointing towards a small cabin in the distance.

The two friends ran towards the cabin, their hearts pounding with fear. As they reached the door, they heard a blood-curdling scream coming from inside.

”What was that? ” Emma asked, her voice barely above a whisper.

James slowly opened the door, and the two friends peered inside. The cabin was empty, except for a large, mosquito-like creature hovering in the air. It was covered in blood, and its long, sharp proboscis was dripping with red liquid.

”Oh my god, ” Emma whispered, her eyes wide with fear. ”Its one of those blood-sucking mosquitos we heard about. ”

The creature let out another terrifying scream and lunged towards them, its mouth open wide. Emma and James screamed and ran out of the cabin, their feet pounding against the ground as they tried to escape the monstrous insect.

As they ran, they could hear the mosquito gaining on them, its wings buzzing loudly in their ears. They knew they wouldn be able to outrun it for much longer.

”We have to do something! ” Emma cried out, her voice filled with desperation.

James thought quickly, his mind racing. ”I have an idea, ” he said, grabbing Emmas hand. ”We need to find a way to kill it! ”

Together, the two friends ran deeper into the forest, searching for a way to save themselves from the blood-sucking mosquito. The creature was swiftly gaining up on them and they realized they were running out of time.

While Emma and James ran through the forest, the blood-sucking mosquito hot on their heels, they frantically searched for a way to defend themselves. The creatures wings buzzed louder and louder, filling them with more fear.

”We have to find something to kill it! ” James shouted, his voice strained with panic.

”But what? ” Emma cried out, her eyes scanning the surrounding area for any sign of a weapon.

Suddenly, James spotted a large branch lying on the ground nearby. ”There! ” he shouted, pointing towards the branch. ”We can use that to defend ourselves! ”

Emma nodded, relief flooding through her veins. The two friends ran towards the branch, their hearts pounding in their chests. As they reached it, they grabbed it with all their might and swung it at the mosquito, trying to knock it out of the air.

But the creature was too quick and agile. It easily dodged their attempts, its proboscis darting out to sting them again and again. The friends could feel their strength draining away with each passing moment, their bodies becoming weaker and more vulnerable.

”We have to do something! ” Emma yelled. ”We can keep running forever! ”

James nodded, and said with a determination. ”We can kill it. Just run! ” he said, his voice steady and resolute.

The two friends continued to run through the forest, searching for a way to escape the blood-sucking mosquito. Its screams filled the air, sending shivers down their spines.

Eventually they reached the edge of the forest, they came across a small pond. The water was still and dark, its surface reflecting the stormy sky above.

”We have to jump in the pond to save our life! ” James shouted, his eyes filled with hope. ”The mosquito can swim! ”

Without hesitation, Emma and James ran towards the pond and jumped in, the cold water enveloping them as they sank beneath the surface. The mosquito flew above them, its wings beating furiously as it searched for a way to get to them. The two friends held their breath beneath the surface for as long as they could afford until eventually their hunter gave up its pursuit. They waited until it was gone before they surfaced and made their escaped.
