The Skeleton Tree

by Ari Collins

The white root wrapped itself around the hiker’s tanned ankle and yanked him off his feet. As he was pulled into the root system, his last sight was the tree above: smooth white branches, leafless despite the warm summer.

The next day, the wind rustled the Skeleton Tree’s scarlet leaves, causing tanned seeds to fall.
