10 of 12 given words:
headlight fetal spell pity radio melody
cryophilic (thriving in low temperatures)
promontory (land projecting into the sea)
insular (relating to an island)
china (the material)

It was dark in the woods outside
It was eerie and cold

The headlights suddenly hit upon
a bundle at the edge of the road
Lying in a fetal position,a human form
It was not overly cryophilic but it
would spell disaster to be on the
ground not adequately dressed
More so the promontory part
of the plateau was subject to
an insular type of climate
It was like sitting on a cold slab
of china in a cold room, a pity!

The car radio was blaring a
remorseful melody for the past hour
Was this the missing housewife
heard earlier?

  1. A find no one wants to come upon. Something foul may have been afoot.

  2. Love the suspense! I do hope there is a second installment. Now I want to know what happened... and why.

  3. To me this brings that emotion of how often we just pass somebody in need of help... maybe we think they're drunk, but in the end it's too late to help.
