Dashing Through The Snow

Darren dashed across the yard and headed for the trees. The snow was falling rapidly. He slowed to catch his breath.

He could hear his name being screamed. Not too far away. He had to start moving again.

The trees are thicker. He could hear his pursuer crashing through the underbrush behind him.

He found a large tree and stepped behind it pressing himself flat.

“Gotcha!” His big brother grabbed his arm, yanked him out and punched him in the face.

“How many times do I have to tell you to leave my models alone? You broke it!”



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.
