A story in a tweet

I had a go at the writers bureau monthly competition; didn't get anywhere but had fun trying.
Here is my "scary story" in less than 140 characters (139 to be precise) excluding title




WEDDING NIGHT



Drifting to sleep, Josie marvelled at the coolness of his milky skin.
As she dreamt he crept, shadowless, to the window. 
Let feasting begin.

  1. I like this - it's very understated and that makes it creepier. Definitely better than the entry that actually won.

    I've come to the conclusion that to win these competitions you have to write something that doesn't make sense...

    1. You may be onto something.
      Me, brevity not really something I do well :)
