It was fall. She and her friend were going on a weekend camping trip. They pitched their small, camo-colored pup tent in the woods.
Their first morning, she started to awaken. It was still dark, but a beam of sunlight seemed to be shining into their tent. She opened her eyes and their drab tent was yellow from that sunbeam.
As she went outside, she heard a loud, booming gunshot and felt a bullet whizzing by her ear. The hunter ran up to her and said, “Thank goodness your tent is yellow! I would have accidentally shot you otherwise.”
Thanks to Charli and the Carrot Ranch for the great prompt and photo!
Thank God he wasn’t a great shot 🙂
What a fright that would be, Rosemary! I savored the way you described the sunbeam illuminating the tent and the action caught me by surprise!
