Today’s short story prompt was inspired by a Twilight Zone episode (The Monsters are Due on Maple Street, Season 1, if you’re curious). As usual, feel free to post in the comments below.
A mysterious creature is approaching a small country town. It travels in the forest at night, slowly obliterating everything in its path. The town’s only defense is a group of hunters determined to save their families. What are their thoughts and plans, and how do the townspeople left behind react?
