March Drabble Challenge: Green

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:
Green

The Submission:
When I got married, I never expected to be arguing about the colour of the walls!

She wanted green, but I wanted turquoise. Apparently, not agreeing with her made me the most unreasonable person ever to live.

In her outburst, she hurled insults at me that I thought cut deeper than any knife but, as I plunged the blade into her, that turned out not to be true.

The crimson spray splattered across the walls; in her agony, she left streaks of gore staining the room.

In that moment, I realised we were both wrong: red is much more fitting.


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.
