"Hot Tomale!" a five minute freewrite


This is the freewrite challenge. I am using @mariannewest’s #freewrite prompt to write this piece (https://steemit.com/freewrite/@mariannewest/day-723-5-minute-freewrite-sunday-prompt-hot-tamale





Today’s prompt is:
#
# *hot tamale*

This is part ***One Hundred And Twenty One*** of my current freewrite series - I’m calling it *RatsNest* for now - (posted daily Monday - Saturday).

Nunchucks looked as though he was going to puke, Magenta Slight thought, as the doors in the corridor opened. 

There was a moment when nothing happened, there was no movement from behind the now open doors, no sound. Even the sound of Nunchucks breathing had stopped. 

He was holding his breath, she realised. 

Then the sounds began. Lumbering, slithering, rolling, crawling, scratching. As the creatures contained behind the doors realised they had a chance of freedom. 

"Hot Tomale!" Nunchucks breathed as the first creature appeared. It was a Hungher. Or at least had once been one. Usually proud beasts, the creature looked dejected as it slipped out into the corridor, dragging a twisted tail behind it. It hissed when it saw Nunchucks and Magenta standing at the end of the corridor. 

Nunchucks moved behind Magenta, cowering. She could feel him shiver behind her as the creature began to limp towards them.

As usual, I started with the freewrite prompt and used themostdangerouswritingapp.com to write the first five minutes (and then popped it into google docs to check for errors and tidy it up a bit):
