March Drabble Challenge: Wool

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:
Wool

The Submission:
I brought my beloved home to meet the family. They were so excited; mother was wearing her favourite wool jumper, father was suited up, and even little Mickey was dressed up nice and smart.

I sat her at the table and helped mother in the kitchen; she had been slow cooking the meat all day long, the potatoes were crispy, and the vegetables were steamed and ready. When I brought the food to my sweetheart, she screamed and raved and refused to eat.

So ungrateful! And after mother spent hours chopping and basting and seasoning her jerk of a “boyfriend”.
