January 2023 Drabble Challenge: Break

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:
Break

The Submission:
James crouched low in the bushes outside of Lily’s house; the porch light was on, but the only light on inside came from her bedroom. He knew exactly which window was hers; he’d been up there enough, after all. From where he crouched, he could see her silhouette perfectly cast behind her curtains; she as combing that long, flowing red hair and getting ready for bed. Keeping low, he sidled up to the house, careful to stay in the blind spot of the security camera on the front door, and clambered up the ivy-clad trellis that stretched up the back wall. It wasn’t the first time he’d done it; she had delighted when he’s snuck up there after hours, the feel of his tongue, the sensation of her orgasm as he explored her every orifice, her moans stifled by her cushions.

James was determined that Lily would feel it again. She’d said she wanted to take a break, that things were moving too fast, but he knew exactly what that meant. She wanted more; more excitement, more games, more of a chase. As he carefully slid open her window and stretched a leg into her bedroom, James flexed his hands with excitement, eager to give her exactly what she wanted and take that which she had coyly kept denying him despite the obvious longing in her eyes.
