Here is my drabble:
My lungs burn as I run through the darkened forest.
I hear my pursuer behind me. The trees are flying past. I sharpen my vision to avoid hitting one.
The darkness is lifting slightly and I can see my goal; home. Safety is within my grasp.
I glance over my shoulder. In my giddiness to escape, his disappearance went unnoticed.
I put in one last burst of speed when I spy the fence.
Suddenly, he’s there.
He nips my heel. I go down.
“Stop!” I shout as he tries to lick me to death. He wags his tail in joy.
