Elusive Ape Man

The sunrise was brilliant that morning. Such an odd day for them to be looking for the elusive ape man known in these parts to have only been spotted in the wee hours of morning before daybreak.

They set up their high-tech equipment that would provide them with the sounds that the creatures made that were inaudible to the human ear.  Each, with earphones tightly covering their ears and concentrating intently, was caught totally unaware when brutally grabbed from behind.  The last thing they heard was a piercing, howling snarl as they became early breakfast for the mysterious ape man.

    • Thanks so much, Victoria. I decided to try my hand at horror–don’t ask me why–it’s not my favorite genre! It was fun to try.

  7. This was a very nice story. For some reason, it made me smile. I guess the thought of them being so totally unaware of what was about to happen and, yet, they had such sophisticated equipment. Nice job … !!!!

    • Yes, the intention was for a smile–they were all settled in with their helpful equipment and yet…
