March Drabble Challenge: Bleed

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:
Bleed

The Submission:
By rights, I shouldn’t even be out here in the goddamn woods searching for some kid too stupid to know better.

A blur of motion caught my eye; I whirled around, frantically shining my torch across the thick trees, but visibility was almost impossible because of the pouring rain and I didn’t see the wolf until it was leaping at me.

Hot breath filled my nostrils as I beat at the wolf. I screamed as gleaming teeth clamped around my forearm and tore at my flesh, splashing gore in my eyes as it bit at my throat and gorged itself.


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. You can also follow Gillian Church to take part in her Weekly Writing Prompt challenge.
