FFfAW – 164th Challenge
This week’s photo prompt is provided by Ellespeth. Thank you Ellespeth!
“Run along, Mathilda! Are you tired already? Remember we have to pass through this human village before anyone sees us. That human girl often passes by from here at this time of the day.”, shouted Paula.
“Oh! You’re practically running! No one knows about our existence till now and no one will. You are so paranoid all the time!”, said Mathilda, panting.
But then she noticed Paula has stopped abruptly in her path. Suddenly, Paula turned towards her and whispered, “The girl is coming! Oh my god!”.
“What girl! THE girl! The human girl!”
Mathilda almost shouted, “What do we do! There’s no time to hide!”
Paula looked around, “Quick! Grab those barrels and hold still. Don’t even move an inch before I tell you too.” She herself picked up a metal rod which looked just like her arm.
The girl came, admired the newly placed figures on her path, and went away.
Mathilda took a deep breath. She smiled at Paula, “See, I told you! No one will know about us!”
