Swamp Ape Saviour

Unread post by Wolf » Thu Jun 07, 2018 10:52 am

After reading an encounter on Sasquatch Chronicles back in 2016 I felt inspired to write it up as a fictional story, changing some details and especially the ending.

Then Wes reposted it recently so I felt compelled to go back to it, edit it some more and post it.

Hope you guys enjoy it...


Tommy fearfully ran down the long gravel road through the swamp.

He was half-blinded from the tears streaming down his face, his heart pounding against his ribs in his 9yr old chest.

His lungs tore at the humid air with the effort, straining to keep his legs moving.

Ahead of him the road stretched into the distance... while beside him the uncaring swamp ignored his plight.

His legs were heavy with desperate weariness but he dared not slow down. He knew from bitter experience that all too soon he would hear the sound of his pursuer.​

Tommy had lost count how many times he had fled down this road from his tormentor, running on and on, his legs straining for more speed, in yet another desperate attempt to get away from Uncle Joey.

But the old truck always caught up to him.

And when it did Uncle Joey would smile his evil smile before slapping him around the head and throwing him into the back of the truck to be returned to the horror of the farm.

Each time Tommy swore this beating would be the last and each time he grew more determined to escape.

Last night had been particularly bad, causing Tommy to once more vow to get away.

Hopefully this time Uncle Joey would be slower.

Hopefully this time he would think Tommy was still feeding the pigs.

Hopefully one of the other boys would distract him with something and give him a longer head start.

But with the sun pounding down on his head and his legs slowly turning to lead, Tommy felt the dread of hopelessness pull at his bones, draining his waning strength.

Your paragraph spacing in the website continuation is astray - sometimes a blank line between paragraphs and sometimes not.
