Under!

Felt a vibration under his feet

relaxing in the garden

a warm day the birds singing

noticed they stopped

suddenly his drink just tipped

over onto the grass

this made him jump held chair

under his breath did swear!

 

From miles away heard the bang

plumes of smoke rose

from a distant volcano it came

then flames and lava to

knew had to get family away

the garden began to crack

rapidly crumbled under his feet

with an unbearable heat!

 

Frightened he picked up the kids

wife running close behind

barely getting off the drive safely

as landscaped collapsed

blackness filled the sunny skyline

their home consumed

an acrid smoke made them choke

no time to lose hope!

 

They were alive many had perished!

Aware!

An odd sensation was all she was aware

a pain and the darkness

awoke suddenly alone in her apartment

as if from a deep sleep

everything seemed exactly as before

yet different was so sure!

 

On the large settee she found herself laid

adjusting her blurred vision

her pet dog came to lick the hanging hand

but never felt the sensation

concerned sat up it was then she realised

life had been deprived!

 

Her body was on the settee white and still

yet she seemed so real

the dog slowly backed away as if in fear

her husband came in

from a night shift and to her side ran

a tired shattered man!

 

She had loved him now could not touch

only watch as he tried

to revive the woman he had just wed

phoning for an ambulance

in shock laid beside her loudly praying

their pet with a ball playing!

 

Paramedics came very quickly with aid

watching expecting the light

her husband holding their fluffy pet dog

hearing every word they said

both tried everything to start the heart

not wanting her forever to part!

 

Surely it was too late life had now passed

but a weird sensation

more pain a deep breath and a gentle kiss

a warm hand gentle breath

knowing she was back alive and not alone

really hearing his soft tone!

 

Upon a stretcher drips in arms on oxygen

heading to the medical centre

heard a voice an image of her dead father

faintly saying not your time

my precious child but I am always near

later was certain she did hear!

 

Eighteen months seemed to have flown by

their dreams had come true

back in hospital for birth of their child

the problems now melted away

happily over time her strength grew

incredibly life had begun anew!

Ninth!

The eight soldiers entered the helicopter

destined for a covert mission

leaving base silently  in the early hours

for a mission into enemy terrain

an experienced battle hardened team

regarded in high esteem!

 

With no indication anything was wrong

yet each soldier had anxiety

that they would never openly display

their emotions had  to control

the signal came nearing dropping zone

now entering the unknown!

 

As they slid quickly down the long ropes

there was a ninth shape

that dropped with them onto the sand

following the group into action

and to buildings on the town periphery

the beginning of the mystery!

 

They were tense the adrenaline pumping

their mission to extract

two recently captured special forces officers

from a terrorist compound

a dangerous task yet they were distracted

that with them it interacted!

 

As the team edged nearer they spread out

to cover each others position

two were snipers who were here to eliminate

any guards on their way

drawing near distinct footsteps came close

made them feel tense and morose!

 

Unable to speak being in the danger zone

now the outline of the soldier

could be seen who was the uninvited guest

now far too late to abort

the window of opportunity was so very fine

into action went the nine!

 

Through winding alleyways  stealthily ran

night vision guiding their progress

until the target came into view they halted

each trying hard to focus

sensing the entity hovering in the shadows

the concentration narrows!

 

With the men in their positions the order is given

and they enter the compound

stun grenades deployed any opposition silenced

aiming for the specific rooms

only to find the men were nowhere to be seen

a situation not foreseen!

 

Trying to exit quickly gunfire held them back

realising it was a preplanned trap

split in two groups unsure of the opposition

heard voices and more gun fire

moving slowly forward came into the open air

as the ninth soldier stood there!

 

Waving his hand as if wanting them to follow

the four glanced at each other

out into the alleyways once more scurried

certainly not their planned route

firing could be heard close by as they united

eight commando delighted!

 

Following the ninth unknown member to safety

soon on the open ground

stood in a circle thanking god they were all safe

disappointed the mission failed

thoughts turned to the guardian showing the way

from that deadly fray!

 

On cue the helicopter dropped from the dark sky

and they got on board waiting

from the shadows the outline of the ninth soldier

seemed to jump on with the team

yet nobody was seen but each knew he was there

their comrade felt no fear!

 

Even from beyond the grave the soldier’s spirit stayed

to guide his living compatriots

forever on the battle lines ready to give his support

on landing none would tell

of the soldier that certainly helped them to survive

who would believe a ghost kept them alive!

 

Who the ninth spirit was never did get discovered!

Across Country!

At the time it seemed to us a brilliant idea

to drive across country

my girlfriend and I an adventure together

a week just the two of us

but it all changed at the mountain range

then things became strange!

 

Through winding roads trees became dense

as we searched for a motel

but the navigation signal had become poor

the weather deteriorated

with no choice but to pull off the empty road

as a tall object across it strode!

 

This we had not expected to see just up ahead

what human could be out here

in such an icy raging storm could it be a bear

that thought made us perturbed

huddled together knowing we must proceed

this was our pressing need!

 

The tyres started spinning as we pulled out

with its leave covered surface

panic began to over ride our calm persona

sounds neither had heard before

then a huge shape approached our position

getting away the only mission!

 

Just making the road as a large human face

peered through the front screen

as claws slashed the vehicles side with force

which nearly made me spin

thankfully keeping straight foot to the floor

never felt so scared ever before!

 

Driving until the gas had completely drained

we coasted downa  steep incline

as a serene lake and a hotel came into view

having to abandon the vehicle

seeing the slashed body panels as we walked

still it  felt we were being stalked!

 

Later speaking to the receptionist on desk duty

now in a fit state to speak

they said many others had similar stories to tell

and it fitted with the legends

of Big Foot the name the beast was fondly known

but violence never before was shown!

 

Thankfully the rest of the journey was uneventful

and we were alive the story to tell!

Trapped!

The red lights flashed on and off rhythmically

as the heavy door slammed shut!

They were trapped within the war-time bunker

not abandoned as they had thought.

Thinking it was fun an adventure to explore

then a disturbing loud roar!

 

No way to retreat now the only way forward

a loud pearcing siren sounded.

The intermittent light showing a dank tunnel

going endlessly into the distance!

Slipping on the carved out granite single track

afraid what maybe at their back.

 

Downwards they headed gathering momentum

the wierd noises increased.

Crashing into each other as they were halted

at the doors of a large lift.

Without warning shuddering the doors opened

falling in it soon started to descend!

 

An awful smell made some reach and others vomit

there was no interior light.

Visibility was zero but it felt sticky and very hot

eventually the lift stopped.

They dreaded what waited for them down here

doors opened their vision clear.

 

Bodies laid everywhere one was in the lift to

many in white lab coats.

What had they come across trapped in here

everything had been smashed .

Afraid to take a step into this man-made hell

a body from the ceiling fell!

 

Mutilated laid motionless there before them

intuitively knew it was above.

Everyone reluctantly took a few steps forward

the last went to make his exit.

Then the lift started to rise trapping his head

and more gore was rapidly spread!

 

The four remaining heard a frantic female voice

warning them to run from there.

Instinctively they sprinted for their survival

just as a large shape landed behind!

Hiding amongst the pipes where they had been

their presence had sensed and seen!

 

Four remained certain they would be caught

to their left side a woman called.

Slowing and turning she had their attention

beckoning to head in her direction.

Confused and petrified but glad for a direction

making a strange collection!

 

The monster was rapidly gaining on their position

their energy was nearly spent.

Bruised and bloody as they hit the jagged walls

came to a huge metal door.

She pressed in the code it lifted a couple of feet

to get under was no easy feat!

 

But once again the last lad was just to portly

hearing the thing was close.

Had to bring the metal shutter back down

the screams were the last sounds.

It was much darker the noise of water clear

reaching the edge the drop was sheer!

 

No time for hesitation jumped into flowing water

which took them to freedom!

The woman and two of the group emerged alive

hopefully safe for the moment.

Exhausted collapsed on the bank down river

on a muddy and foal smelling sliver.

 

But what had happened it was obviously a secret

would survivors need to be eliminated?
