Anyhoo, this week's flash fiction challenge was fun. Linked here: http://terribleminds.com/ramble/2013/10/11/flash-fiction-challenge-horror-in-three-sentences/comment-page-3/#comment-345007
Basically, a horror story in 3 sentences. It needs a beginning, middle and end and has to be scary. I had fun with this little challenge and might return here again!
Hopefully this little offering hits the spot :)
I wake suddenly with a full-throated scream, torn from a terrifying nightmare of being endlessly chased by a shadowy figure through a dreamscape city of half-formed streets and houses. With sleep-encrusted eyes barely wincing open, I grab the glass from the nightstand and take a sip. Cool, rich and globular, the crimson liquid soothes my torn throat, and I sleepily thank my corpse bride as she lies next to me.
