Bigfoot Eureka

An excerpt from my horror story:

Big Foot Eureka

He rinsed the shovel and dried it off, refolded it. The creek water felt soft on his sweaty face, got the salt out from around his eyes. Bats took off over the creek, flying crookedly against the lapis sky.

Deke smiled, pulled off his damp T-shirt and rubbed the silky water down over his chest. Water dripped down his still-trim belly to his shorts. His body hair slicked in a trail. How would it be to be larger, heavier, and covered in hair? What exactly would Bigfoot think? Could he think, or did he run on an instinctive hum… forage, hunt, eat, rut, defecate, sleep… ? Did they have a sense of clan, or family? Did they live and travel in groups? Did they range widely, or settle in one territory?

He wrung out the T-shirt. In the film, the female Bigfoot turned her upper body to look back at the men with the camera.

If Bigfoot existed, she was a hominid, not an ape.

I write speculative fiction, science fiction, horror, fantasy, cross-genre, unclassified, non-fiction, scripts, poetry and dreams. I'm branching out into multimedia projects. My Vampire Madam series is available on Amazon. The first episode is Animals of London. My work has appeared in anthologies, literary journals, newspapers and on websites under a trio of pen names. I made my first sale to the Pan Book of Horror: Dark Voices series.
