January 2023 Drabble Challenge: Bundle

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:
Bundle

The Submission:
Richie hopped on his bike and pedalled away, a toothy sneer on his face as the shopkeeper yelled at him, clearly unimpressed with the artwork Richie had scrawled on his wall.

Richie cycled along at breakneck speed, taking corners blindly as always. But, today, luck was against him. As he bolted across an intersection, he collided with the bumper of a rusted black van.

Richie lay on the pavement a mess of scrapes and aches; his left arm felt very numb and far away. Through blurry eyes, he saw the driver approach him. Richie moaned, feeling teeth tumble from his slit mouth, as he was lifted him like a bundle of broken twigs and tossed him in the back of the van.
