Bloody Cherries

I remember a breeze

Flowing through the cherry trees

How peaceful it was

Petals and cherries dropping onto the ground

Leaving a whole river of blossoms

Saw a squirrel swim through the stream

Digging through the cherries

What could possibly go wrong

 

Flash! A creature dashes through the trees

The squirrels heart starts racing

Eyes frantically searching

The murderer grasps onto its prey

The squirrel

Torn into shreds

Blood splat everywhere

Pieces falling from the cherry tree
