The Hunger

They pressed against the glass doors, their wild eyes searching for their prey. The madness had spread through the population, infecting more people than the experts had anticipated. I took refuge behind the counter, hoping its meager defense would be enough. “Remember your training.” urged Paul, wh...

Rockabye Cry

Rockabye baby on a tree top
A wind blows that I wish would stop,
Gripped by fear for all to see
I want to know why I’m up a tree?

Re: He Had A Farm

Fair enough :)

I like how you've imagined the story with this explanation, its a shame it wouldn't fit into the 100 words, but then I guess that is the challenge of only having 100 words.

I look forward to your next submission.

A Prophecy Fulfilled

The figure stood resplendent in a beauty that brought tears to my eyes. I blinked the tears away and saw another aspect so horrific that it choked off my scream with paralyzing terror. The skin over its head pulsed, then erupted over me in an mass of long, thin worms. They penetrated and emerged ove...

Re: He Had A Farm

I like this story, and I appreciate the difficulty in getting a story to fit exactly 100 words having tried a few myself. The only part that didn't quite work for me was "He thought he could teach the animals what they were supposed to say". The word 'thought', for me, doesn't fit when he succeeded ...

Scratches at the door

I do not remember when the door appeared, but each night the scratches draw me to it. I stand there, my hand hovering inches away from the handle, unable to grasp it or pull away. Tonight I feel the cold metal before I even register I am out of bed. Perception shifts and I see through the door at a ...

Walkers in the Mist

They walked the water's edge when the mist rolled in from the sea. Without fail they stalked along the inaccessible beach. I called down to them, but they did not hear, or chose not to. Despite being forbidden, or perhaps because it was so, I would watch from my perch on the cliff. That was until th...

Hush little baby

I wake to darkness. My child whines in my arms so I rock him gently until he sleeps. Instinctively, I know not to move in case he wakes. A presence outside draws closer, accompanied by an unnatural, sickly glow that seeps through cracks in the walls. I see the small decayed room around me, with one ...

Cosmic Cucumber

It was beautiful, captivating, awe-inspiring. It looked like a bright yellow sea cucumber with patterns of rich purple adorning its body. To be in its presence filled us with a serene calm. It pulsed psychedelic waves that nurtured a growing euphoria in us all. Every corner of our being was filled w...
