A friend issued a challenge to write a short scary story in just 100 words. That intrigued me! I'll be posting one of these a week during October, just because, you know, it's the season for ghosties and ghoulies and frightful things. My friend will be collecting these short-shorts from other writers and will have them all posted on his website a few days before Halloween. I'll post the link to that as soon as it's available.
And now, the story:
“Feels good to move, doesn’t it?” The voice from the window was deep, smoky.
“Yes. I’ve been sitting too long.” Footsteps sounded on the stairs.
“Here they come. Too soon, too soon…” She reached out as if to push something away.
“Steady,” the voice whispered. “All will be well, you’ll see.”
Cold air entered with two men dressed in black. “Here she is. Died right here in her favorite chair.”
The men lifted a limp form and moved slowly out the door.
“Wait! I’m still here!”
The curtains stirred. “Hush, dear. Come with me. All will be well, you’ll see.”
