Moonlight Drive


Hi Bloggers,

Leo introduced me to a new meme at Thursday's Tales. I am writing a tale inspired by the photo above by artist Dennis B. This is an abbreviated version of my short story. Thankfully I sampled Leo's so I shortened mine's a bit :)

The moon was curling low, dipping behind a tree. The dark shadows leapt out at them. Red climbed the black limbs of the tree, her long coat blowing in the wind. Her cloak was bright like strawberries and spread across the darkness like jam.

Suddenly, they heard cackling in the distance and the howl of a wolf. They were blinded by a pair of lights. A car accelerated in their direction, coughing up dirt in the night air. A wolf in dark shades and an Elvis hairdo stepped out of the convertible.

“Would you ladies care to accompany me on a drive,” he asked. He dropped his shades low, and they were swooning on his yellow eyes.

"What a mysterious wolf," Red laughed. "Hey there handsome. We'll go for a drive," and they all sped away. They rode for hours, not noticing the moon drifting and the sky sporting black shades. They all howled and cackled at the moon until their lungs grew dry. The wolf yawned and his yawning was contagious. Soon Red and her friend drifted to sleep.
