March Drabble Challenge: Tidy

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:
Tidy

The Submission:
Finally given an afternoon to herself, Donna set to work catching up on her menial household chores. After changing the bed sheets, she quickly vacuumed and made the lounge nice and tidy, which always calmed her nerves.

Donna went down to the basement to pull out her washing load and was startled by a rattling from the cage in the corner. She wandered over and rolled her eyes. Doug’s water bowl was empty, and he was rattling the cage bars like a child.

Donna lashed her horsewhip over his knuckles. She wasn’t going to let him ruin her perfect day.
