Daily Darkness: Folklore

Hey all, here’s another drabble for you: “Folklore.”

***

Don’t go near a tree struck by lightning.

Just don’t do it.

In older times, people believed lightning came from the gods, a fiery display of their wrath, their condemnation, and their power. They didn’t know it’s also to protect us.

In movies, someone always says, There’s something in the trees. Maybe not those words exactly, but close enough.

Those characters usually mean between the trees.

When lightning strikes a tree, you aren’t supposed to go near it.

There’s a reason some trees wind up hollow and some don’t.

Creatures live in old growth.

They don’t just eat the wood.
