March Drabble Challenge: Nest

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:
Nest

The Submission:
With no other choice, I descended into the nest.

It was a humid hell-hole; the ship’s hull glistening with gore, and dismembered bodies were strewn everywhere.

I could feel them watching me, hissing, slinking in the shadows as I crawled deeper through the viscera that had been my comrades.

Presently, I saw them hard at work ripping my shipmates open groin to gullet, feasting on their innards. Just beyond the screaming carnage was the main generator; I’d have to wade through the beasts to complete the Commander’s mission.

I gripped the release rings on my grenade belt and charged ahead.


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. You can also follow Gillian Church to take part in her Weekly Writing Prompt challenge.
