Where’s The Ocean (9)

Forget fight.. this was all flight. If this was Survival Of The Fittest, I was going to rely on my homing instinct and track our footprints back to the car and where we last saw the adults.

I heard the crunching gravel as the creatures pursued me on turgid tails and slimy arms. Their putrid, hot breath exhaled with malice aforethought made me choke as I gasped for salty air. At this terrific pace, I did not know how long my adrenaline rush would last. My muscles burned.

I called upon the spirt of Davy Crockett to give me strength so I could outrun my pursuers. After all, I was in my element. They were not in theirs.
