The Prompt – Tell Us A Scary Story 2

It’s back. You thought it was gone, but the thing that terrified you as a child is back, and its showing no sign of leaving.



About Doran Simmons

I'm a writer and a camper and a keeper of fish. I was trained as a flight instructor and work day jobs and write nonsense for public consumption (hopefully).

    I am scared of Clowns the most, and I hate Furbies! Those damn things should be eliminated from earth, but again, some people like them. The things that are on earth to scare us are here to let us overcome our fears to make us stronger.

    I don’t know why it came back, or what it is. All i know is that the thing that killed my dad has returned. I can feel it’s eerie presence in the room, the presence so strong i can almost cut it with a knife. All i can do is keep a sharp eye out for anything suspicious.Even the TV remote sitting out of place could be a sign. I am scared for my life, as is my mother. We know we cant fight it. I’m not even sure if we CAN fight it. All we can do is cower and fear it doesn’t take us next. I just need to remember – Be careful of strangers. My mother next to me could be a stranger, and I wouldn’t even know it. People hold dark secrets, and this ‘thing’ is ours.
