I think most of you agreed that the image was distinctly unsettling. The resulting stories reflected that in a whole host of ways: horror, suspense, tragedy, dramatic action, and mystery. Geoff, of course, being the exception… As usual, an abundance of talent and stories spanning a wide range of emotions.
Many thanks for participating, and please look in tomorrow for a new prompt.
Michael’s story touches on a subject that is almost a taboo.
Kat’s family saga continues with Hannah trying to settle in. I’m getting a bit worried about what’s going to happen when Helen leaves…
Sarah with just the right amount of character detail to keep focused on the story and let the tension carry it.
Phylor—something tells me this story is not what it seems, and there’s a nasty comeuppance just waiting to…come up.
Merril’s story is a study in gothic horror, a drama in miniature .
Geoff with a wicked little piece that reminds me of Roald Dahl
Freya’s story also has more than a touch of gothic about it. Tragedy more than horror.
Ken story relates what might well be the last moments in service of a chambermaid.
Leara tackles another not quite so taboo subject as Michael’s, but anyone who has ever had a mother-in-law will empathise.
Kerfe—what is it about laughter that gives it such creepy connotations? Great pictorial story.
Shaun’s story is an action-filled few minutes of high drama.
