February Drabble Challenge: Revenge

Horror PromptsGillian Church 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).

Did you do it?

The Prompt:
Revenge

The Submission:
“If I had to guess, I’d say this was good, old-fashioned revenge,” Donald mused, chewing on a fresh toothpick.

“F’r wot? Neighb’rs say ‘e never hurt a fly.”

Donald took in the crime scene. The walls were literally dripping. Blood was drenched into the rug. The evidence boys were trying to figure out how to zip Mrs. Cartwright’s chainsaw into a secure bag. The lady herself was sedated in the back of an ambulance.

“Trust me, kid. When a woman takes a saw to another man’s junk, you can bet it wasn’t because he forgot to take the bins out!”
