February Drabble Challenge: Candy

Horror PromptsGillian Church has created 28 single-word prompts and challenged writers to write a horror drabble for each. A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words, no more, no less (not counting the title).

Can you do it?

The Prompt:
Candy

The Submission:
I must’ve stood across the street from her house three, maybe four times a week. It was on my way home, and I always liked to stop by to see if I could catch a glimpse of her in her bedroom. Sometimes, she’d be drying her hair wearing only a towel, or lip synching to pop songs, or sitting on her bed and reading. She didn’t know I was there, of course; she never noticed me, even when I was right outside her house. Her name was Candy, and she definitely turned out to be as sweet as she looked.


What did you think to the prompt for this week’s drabble challenge? Did you submit anything for it? Have you ever written any flash fiction before? I’d love to know what you think to my snippets and writing prompts, so feel free to sign up and let me know what you think below or leave a comment on my Instagram page.
