Wednesday already and time again for Friday Fictioneers. A 100 words of fiction created from a photo prompt and a spark of an idea.
Last week was manic and I didn’t get chance to catch up with everyone’s pieces, I promise to do better this week.

The sun had reached its highest, smudging the tops of the ash trees along the track. Summer thunder rumbled in the distance. She felt the darkness seeping in, tunnel walls closing around her, feet dragging towards an escape she couldn’t find.
Then in the distance… light… bringing her back and once more grass beneath her feet.
Memories back and forth; scattered clothes… bodies writhing…. her husband… her sister, the taste of bile that rose from her throat as she turned and ran.
The train was coming, she felt its breath chasing at her back. She lay down and let the light fade into black.
