A dark twist on an otherwise exclusively friendly "Dog" prompt.

Stranger

It was too dark out.

It was too dark out. That was the thing she remembered most before he happened.

Hollow and empty, the night was not oppressive, it was amplifying.

Every sense strained to prove its worth;

Every sense strained to prove its worth; each tingling fibre of her being sought explanation,

Every sense strained to prove its worth; each tingling fibre of her being sought explanation, illumination,

Every sense strained to prove its worth; each tingling fibre of her being sought explanation, illumination, escape.

A chilling mix of sound: scratching, metal, flesh, pavement, leather.

She turned to face nothing.

She turned to face nothing. Turned back and headed nowhere.

Should she run?

Should she run? Would that make it worse?

Should she run? Would that make it worse? What's really happening?

Really, get it together girl.

Another noise,

Another noise, closer,

Another noise, closer, louder,

Another noise, closer, louder, scraping across the hard ground.

Fight or flight? It was too late before she could.

She held out her hand and he drenched her palm with his rough, wet tongue.

Who's a good boy?
