March Drabble Challenge: Luck

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:
Luck

The Submission:
When she’d first found the book, Rachel couldn’t believe her luck.

Finally, after decades of searching, she’d found that most ancient of tomes. Her hands shook as she turned the parchment-like pages, reading aloud the lost incantations that would bestow her the power she needed to avenge herself.

From the shadows of the room crept forth an unspeakable demon; red slits for eyes and clawed talons for hands. Instead of granting her wishes, it wrenched her soul from her body, consuming it, and took her form for its own with glee. Perusing the book, the demon couldn’t believe its luck.


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.
