Redder Riding Hood
by K.R. Morrison

Red grumbled to herself as she scuffed her feet along the path.
It just wasn’t right. She was supposed to be wearing her red cape when she went to Grandma’s. But nooo…Mom had to wash it today. The visit could have waited until tomorrow, but Mom had insisted that Red go now.
NOW. Even though it was raining and cold and yucky out, Red had to put on her little brother’s yellow rain slicker and trudge out to Grandma’s.
She hated yellow. She hated rain slickers. And she was pretty sure she hated everyone and everything.
There were lights in the windows at Grandma’s—good. Short visit and gone.
But wait—this was not her house. Confused, Red looked around her. These were not her woods.
As she turned to go back the way she had come, she heard barking behind her. She looked back, and saw an enormous dog rushing toward her. And the damn thing had three heads!
Red shrieked and started running. She didn’t get far before something came out of the ground and caught her around the ankle. It picked her up and shook her like a rag doll.
The dog stopped in its tracks. A voice came from all around: “Cerberus! Fetch!”
Red found herself flying through the air, the freaky dog following below her. It caught her in its jaws.
No doubt about it—that yellow slicker was now definitely going to be red.

Be Not Afraid (Pride’s Downfall Vol 1)

Lydia’s faith in God is strong – at least on paper. But what happens when that faith is tested? Turned into a vampire by the worst – Vlad Drakul – she feels that God has abandoned her. But the opposite is true. God rescues her from a fate worse than death, and brings her into the plan He has for global redemption. With the help He sends, she feels like nothing can stop her. But when Vlad torments her again, and then her family, the temptation to run and hide is almost too strong to resist. Her answer to God’s call is the deciding factor in the battle that pits the angelic powers of God against the demonic powers of Hell.

  1. A chilling last line, love it.

  2. That’s a wicked tale – the little girl’s thoughts are so well articulated and I do love a classical reference. 🙂

    HUMOR handled well in a horror story — not everyone can do it! Good one!
