100 Words a Day 699

The idol was set upon a beat up foldout table, the sort you find at basement potlucks of poor community organizations. The legs were stiff, and squeaked when they were unfolded. The wood was stained and splintered from years of abuse.

The idol was made of sticks bound together with rubber bands and formed into an effigy. It had six limbs, presumably four of which were arms, though it was difficult to tell because whatever inhuman entity it depicted was hunched over, as though it used its lower and middle limbs to lope along, like something between man and beast.
