March Drabble Challenge: Stubborn

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:
Stubborn

The Submission:

He always was a pig-headed, stubborn brute of a man.

Everything had to be HIS way.

He ALWAYS had to have the last word.

He could NEVER be wrong.

At first, I could accept this; the sex was amazing, after all, and he brought in good money…but none of that matter when you’re constantly belittled.

Accused of everything under the sun, every little word or action or mistake criticised.

Something snapped that morning and I just went for him.

I can’t help but feel relived at the sight of his broken, twitching body lying at the bottom of the stairs.


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.
