IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN!

***And the winner is…Lydia Stevens! WOOT WOOT! ***

Welcome to another edition of

Flash Fiction Friday!

Today’s challenge is brought to you by the lovely Autumn Jordan! Autumn is giving away a critique of the first three pages of a current WIP, to be chosen using random.org.

THANKS, AUTUMN!

Okay, let’s flex those writing muscles with today’s prompt.

IN 25 WORDS OR LESS,

tell us a story (the creepier, the better), using this as your opening line: 

The noise came from just outside my window.

Annnnnnnnd GO!

    The noise came from just outside my window. Rattling breath. The stench of soured blood from the harvest. My wound ached, but I would fight.

    The noise came from just outside my window but I shouldn’t be hearing my son call out Mommy because I buried him yesterday.

    The noise came from outside my window…claws scraping on glass. Then ten seconds of silence. The deep scratch down my calf, made me weep.

    I don’t know why mine didn’t post! Or maybe I posted in the wrong thread. Haha! Anyway, here is mine.

    The noise came from just outside my window and I freeze. I shouldn’t be hearing my son call out Mommy, because I buried him yesterday.

    The noise came from just outside my window. How had they found me so soon? A shadow loomed. Absolutely no one knew about this place.

    The noise came from just outside my window. Bare branches scraped across the glass. I hid but I knew he’d find me. He always did.

    The noise came from just outside my window. I draw the curtain slowly to the side, a pair of red glowing eyes meet mine. I turn to flee as glass shatters behind me.

    The kids were home early. Did I have enough time to get rid of the evidence that I had eaten most of their Halloween candy while they were gone? The youngest one knew how to hold a grudge…I was so screwed.
