Misty – written by Teresa Dean Smeigh

Heather can barely see her hand in front of her face as she crashes through the fog enshrouded woods behind her house and heads for the open field. She strains to hear the sounds of her pursuer.

No longer able to breathe freely, she stops and hides behind a tree and listens. She wills her breathing to slow down. She doesn’t want to give away her location. I hear nothing. Maybe he has quit chasing me.

The tug on her ponytail pulls her head back, startling her, exposing her throat. She looks into his face and has only a moment to realize that it is over. The knife pierces her throat and darkness descends.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.
