100-word story: Whispers from the Pines

IMG_0145

The pines were whispering to me.

“Can’t you hear them?” I asked my brother.

He stared at me. “Hear what?”

“The pine trees. The whispers all around us.” I pointed at the forest around us.

“Um…no,” he said. He stopped and frowned at me. “You’re not serious, are you?”

He wasn’t ready yet. I smiled. “Of course I’m not. I just wanted to freak you out.”

He laughed. “You know, I was afraid you were losing it there for a second.”

I’ll tell him when he’s ready. Soon he’ll have to hear it one way or another. Very soon.
