March Drabble Challenge: Clover

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:
Clover

The Submission:
Jonesy tore through the weeds and grass, ripping up handfuls of clovers and soggy dirt in a frantic search for any trace of the mushroom.

He wrenched at roots, tearing his fingernails in his desperate search. He was rapid, frothing, a fiery ache in his stomach at the desire to experience the unmitigated euphoria offered by the fungi.

He didn’t give two shits about Mark; the idiot just couldn’t stomach the pressure. Jonesy had barely batted an eyelid when he’d seen his friend shrivel to a corpse and turn to dust before his eyes.

All he wanted was another taste.
