Snow Storm (standard:drama, 229 words)
Author: SophieAdded: Nov 06 2002Views/Reads: 2531/1Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
A young girl walking in a blizzard is persued by a mysterious man.
 



The snow came early that year, surprising the last of the shivering
leaves, who clung desperately to their branches in the wind like 
frightened children to their mothers' hands in a crowd.  A little girl 
about eight years old trudged slowly through the ankle-deep mess of 
slush and dying leaves, her boots leaving furrows that the ever-falling 
snow hurriedly filled in.  She wore a long striped scarf whose tassels 
swung against her jean-clad knees, and matching striped mittens dangled 
from the sleeves of her coat.  Her blonde curls, covered in snowflakes, 
escaped from beneath her striped hat.  Her head was bowed, her eyes 
fixed on the ground in front of her.  She seemed oblivious to the 
traffic that rushed by on the road to her right. 

Purposefully oblivious, too, to the man who walked several paces behind
her.  In a brown leather jacket and khaki slacks, he was not dressed 
for the weather, and he shivered as he walked.  Slush slipped into his 
shoes and snow fell beneath the collar of his jacket, dusted his dark 
hair, and coated the lashes of his piercing blue eyes.  He shoved his 
hands into his pockets angrily and lengthened his stride, apparently 
seeking to close the distance between himself and the little girl.
