January 2023 Drabble Challenge: Promise

Horror PromptsGillian Church is hosting a horror drabble challenge this January: 31 prompts for 31 creepy tales throughout January that clock in at around 100 words.

The Prompt:
Promise

The Submission:
The knife slid in like better.

The man, whatever his name was, clutched at my shoulder weakly; his eyes were wide, stunned.

His putrid breath filled my nostrils as he asked, “Why?” in a weak, gurgling whisper.

He didn’t even recognise me.

I stabbed again, driving the blade into his face, gouging open his cheek and spilling his eyeball down his troll-like face with glee.

“I made a promise,” I growled, and stabbed again.


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?
