February Drabble Challenge: Luggage

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:
Luggage

The Submission:
Last pickup of the day, an’ of course she wants t’go t’the friggin’ airport. I tell myself no worries, that I’ll get home an’ enjoy Marjorie’s patented meat-an’-‘tater pie with a hefty tip in my pocket.

The lady must be in a real hurry; she hopped right in the cab without so much as a “How-do-you do”.

I wuddn’t mind so much but the well-dressed cow’s got some hefty luggage for her trip, an’ o’course she don’t help lift it.

Luckily, she’s a quiet one, so the trip’s not wasted on gossip.

Huh… never noticed blood under me nails before.
