Oh no blue clad she thing save yourself!!!
Nice!

Jim said...

Ooh, Kay! This is scary, scary. It reminds me of Sampson growing his hair back, but much more quickly.

Michael G-G said...

Oh no! This does not sound like it will end well...

Nicely executed, Kay. Glad to hear you are feeling better. Have a great week.

DanPloy said...

Nice one Kay.
Hope you don't have too much snow?

SparkleFarkle said...

Ahhhhhh... A successful molt can be so...so...deliciously satisfying! (Ew!)

I love it!
Come for a visit? Thanks!

I agree with Michael--I don't think this will end well, either! Good one, Kay.

SparkleFarkle said...

Yikes! Is it possible Mothman ate my first comment? Apparently molting does work up quite an apppetite!

A raincoat, a perfect disguise for a metallic monster?

anthonynorth said...

Nice one. A touch of fantasy writing in that.

I wondered how the yellow thingamajig could fit in...now what about that extra hand near its hindquarters?

Fun read!

Madeleine said...

Ooh I like this one :O)

izzy said...

Saw that yellow tarp and wondered!

Cute prize! But I still hope he escapes those evil clutches. ;)

Susan at Stony River said...

You've tossed me right back to warm fuzzy memories of late nights with the '50s B-Movies -- awesome!

I visualised an old Saturday Matinee feature as I read this. The scene at the end of the Serial to get you to go back next week to see what happens. Well Done Kay.

jabblog said...

Yikes! I shall have nightmares tonight, Kay! Very funny - who'd have thought a yellow 'cloak' could be so powerful?

Mama Badger said...

Here's hoping she doesn't give him indigestion! Great take.

Jo said...

What a tense situation you have here, Kay. It makes me want to hurry up and read the next part. Ooooh. Have a great day. (PS has Lindy seen more deer today? LOL) (((Hugs))) Jo

Pooch said...

This is a great one!! Your idea is so original and interesting! Quite a story!

Trellissimo said...

I wonder if he thought the prize was worth winning?!

Diane said...

Great prize.... yum, I guess! :O)

quilly said...

But she's wearing the wrong kind of material to attract a moth! ;)

Karen said...

You've taken me off on a whole other story in my head...thanks! Love that you incorporated the yellow into your microfiction! :>

Doc FTSE said...

A new look at King Kong and Faye Dunnway!

MartyrMom said...

OOOO good one! I saw the yellow but couldn't think of anything to go with it. Of course I didn't bother looking at the rest of Susan's pictures either >:(

kaykuala said...

True to the prompt, your take takes account of a lot of details. In so doing it's very relevant and smoothly expressed. Excellent!

Pat said...

Ooh, fabulous scifi story, Kay. I like it a lot!
