Overview

In the middle of the forest, a man shoots down a crow as it flies by, for no other reason than to simply see it die. As he makes his way back to his hunting cabin, he finds himself watched by other crows. Ones who are not so easily frightened off by his loud noises and threats. Now, trapped in his cabin, he begins to fear what the true purpose is behind the presence of the crows.

*From the Author*
I wrote this story in my sleep. Literally. My only recollection of this short story before it appeared on my computer screen was a nightmare I was having, as crows are frequent visitors to my home and I often hear them cry out in the night. It is a strange thing to wake one morning and find that I had written down my nightmare as I was having it. That in itself is an eerie concept. What else might my body do while my mind slumbers? I have included this tale in a book of shorts I am working on, tales that are suited for telling around a campfire. I hope you find it entertaining and that my nightmare brings you some enjoyment.
