The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by A.F. Stewart
I’m cold and a breeze is blowing up my… dress. Everything feels twisted and a musty stench fills my nose. What am I lying on? Some scratchy fabric—did I tie one on and end up at Scooter’s place? I open my eyes, expecting a hangover.
Oh shit, it happened again.
I’m in the middle of a who-knows-where field sprawled on a grimy couch with my legs flying high and my ass one inch from mooning the wildlife. For half a minute, I hope it’s not… but then I smell the blood and the stink of viscera.
Another body. About six feet from the couch, oozing fluid into the dirt from a shredded abdomen. I can still taste the raw meat and blood in my mouth.
Damn shit demon. We had a deal. No more blackouts.
I’m supposed to be aware during the kills.
Wait is the dead guy my ex?
Now that damn demon has gone too far.
He promised me I could eat Ralph.

A stellar account, if ever there was one! LOVED this!! Just my kind of black humor!
Glad you enjoyed it.
I love this – the image is so striking and your take on it is perfect – this is one pouty, sassy dark heroine 🙂
I loved it. Short, but sassy. Really, really enjoyed it.
Snorted at the end. Love it!
Hilarious! I love how you took the obvious, turned up the black humor and added a clever twist. Really enjoyed this, thank you!
