March Drabble Challenge: Forsythia

Horror PromptsGillian Church is hosting another horror drabble challenge: 31 prompts for 31 creepy tales throughout March. This time, we can decide on the length of the piece but I’m sticking to the 100-word default.

Can you do it?

The Prompt:
Forsythia

The Submission:
June always loved to tend to her garden. Every day, rain, shine, or snow she’d be out there pottering about. Watering this, digging up that, caring for those. It was her pride and joy, and she was incredibly happy with the splash of colours that blossomed all year round and beamed with delight when people complimented her apple pie.

June loved her forsythia patch most of all. I think that’d be a good place to bury her mangled corpse. The moment I had to take a shovel to the dirt, I regretted not spending more time out here with her.


What did you think to the prompt for today’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.
