February Drabble Challenge: Faithful

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:
Faithful

The Submission:
Glenn couldn’t remember a time Mark hadn’t been there. They’d been practically inseparable since their childhood; “Brother from another mother”, he always said.

But when Sara came to him, eyes streaming, face puffy and bloody, Glenn knew his old friend’s time was up. He’d turned a blind eye too often.

It had been her plan; something had snapped and she was determined to make Mark pay. She’d actually smiled when she set the lit match to the gasoline and watched his body go up in flames. How he had writhed and screamed in agony!

“Should’ve been more faithful,” she’d muttered.
