Something skitters in the darkness
Crawling through shadows
Claws clicking across the floor
Towards the woman
She can’t see it
But she knows it’s not human
As she lies, immobilized, inside its web.
This is my submission for this weekend’s Trifextra challenge, in which we had to write 33 words about something that scares us or our character. I think it’s safe to say that in this case we’re both scared!
Speaking of scary, you should check out the Speakeasy creative writing challenge. This month, we’ve been asking our writers to channel their most frightening, fear-inducing writing—and they have taken to the challenge like zombie ducks to infested waters! If you feel like reading or writing something scary, come check out our prompts for the coming week.
