Here's what I've got for today: The shadow moved. It heard me. The darkness was absolute. She screamed. … Continue reading Six Word Horror Saturday

Six Word Horror Saturday

I've had a few of these building up in my brain for the last few weeks, so I wanted to let them out to play in the sunshine (or moonlight).

Serial Saturday [Horror] – Nancy, Please #8

So, did I get annoyed by anything this week? You bet I did. It's got to be an age thing, or perhaps i'm just miserable.
