Josh scanned the area, ever vigilant. It was quiet. He saw no one. Still, they could be watching. They watched, long distance, and the Borg people made it easy. He tossed his pack watching it land. It thumped on solid ground. A final scan. Satisfied he climbed the railing, feet dangling he let go.

Under the bridge was everything he needed, clean water, a rock chair, and a place to sleep. The waterline said the flooding wouldn’t reach him. Content, he unpacked supplies from his pack and prepared his camp. In the daylight, he could sleep. Tonight, he would run.


Keep on writing.

  2. The first paragraph hammers home the experience of constantly being under scrutiny. Nearly every sentence has a word having do with sight in it. Having set this context, you next show your character to be a sharp-witted doer, and we are instantly cheering for him.

  3. He’s an interesting character experienced at assessing his surroundings and using them to serve his needs. A hardened fugitive maybe. I was immediately on his side even though I don’t know what or who he is fleeing. Well told.

  4. The worst part is always the night. Lets hope he can get a fire going!

    Great work with the story man 🙂 I liked that the amount of detail you out in really let the mind fill in the blanks. Sorry it took so long for me to get to reading it!
