February Drabble Challenge: Pet

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:
Pet

The Submission:
I told her we couldn’t get a pet! But would she listen?!

No! And now look what’s happened!

I just couldn’t help myself! I tried, I really did, but it didn’t matter how cute the kitty was or how much joy she brought us both, I couldn’t fight the temptation.

It’s not that I don’t like pets. I love them! Especially cats, puppies, even plump little rabbits…

God, I’m salivating just thinking about it!

I’m sure she won’t notice; cats run away all the time, after all.

I’m sure she’ll get over it in time.

Hopefully the pie will help.


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.
