March Drabble Challenge: Delusion

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:
Delusion

The Submission:
All too late, he realised the full extent of his mindless delusion.

Sadly, it didn’t come in time to save Mary, whose broken body he held cradled in his trembling arms.

Hubris flowed through him as he swept his eyes across the ravaged laboratory. Sparks few all around; blood was splattered everywhere, and years of research were literally going up in flames.

The creature turned and glared its creator, blood and saliva dripping from its jowls. It gave a low growl and padded slowly, measuring its prey, before lunging ahead, mane ablaze, teeth bared, and feasting upon the doctor’s flesh.  


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.
