January 2023 Drabble Challenge: Scratching

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:

The Submission:
Unable to contain its lust any further, the beast took her. How long had it waited? Eons? Generations? All that time scheming and plotting fell away as it devoured the exquisite taste of her flesh. She was young, ripe, her body firm and plump and given freely despite her early apprehension. Of course, she had been prepared, but even her wildest dreams couldn’t have fathomed the depths of the beast’s depraved carnal desire. It ravaged her, scratching at her peach-perfect skin, relishing in the sound of her screams, the taste of her tears. Unable to stop herself, she met him thrust for thrust, eager to appease her elders as they watched, a crown of thorns digging into her scalp, candles burning all around them as the beast pillaged her depths with a mindless, ceaseless need to procreate…to continue…to rule…
