March Drabble Challenge: Spigot

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:
Spigot

The Submission:
Ted whistled as he pulled up his vegetables, soaking up the warm sun and enjoying the music that drifted across the garden from the radio. Having been out there all morning, he stretched with a groan and headed inside, stopping to wash his hands before making a snack. As his rough hand clasped the spigot, he noticed an odd discolouration around the faucet, but chalked it up to limescale. It wasn’t until later, when chunks of bloody meat were spewing from his lips and his flesh turned to rotten ash that he began to suspect it was something far worse.


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.
