My entry for the 24hr Challenge: 1 Paragraph over at A Tshirt Revolution.
I went to bookcase and grabbed the old beaten n battered copy of Skeleton Crew, a collection of Stephen King’s short stories. Upon opening i found myself reading an old favourite …….. The Raft.
Here’s the paragraph …
“Randy was halfway to the raft when he saw the black patch on the water. It was beyond the raft and to the left of it, more out toward the middle of the lake. Five minutes later the light would have failed too much for him to tell it was anything more than a shadow … if he had seen it at all. Oil slick? he thought, still pulling hard through the water, faintly aware of the girls splashing behind him. But what would an oil slick be doing on an October deserted lake?
Anybody who’s read it (or seen the short movie in Creepshow 2) will know this ain’t no oil slick.
