Fun Challenge for readers and writers - Reveal
At the reminder and insistence of Carmelanirel I will finally tell you about the story that mysterious last line came from. Thank you to all who participated in my challenge, MelissaE bestwriter crowntower Carmelanirel
So in case you forgot, I told you the last line of a short story I had read, and you guys had to come up with a story line. A lot of you had some very good ideas and they were entertaining! If I have come across another good line, I'll be making another challenge.
So the line was "Then...some idiot turned on the lights."
You guys came up with ideas about bank robberies, photography, explosions, and pornography! Haha
But here is what the real story is about (it's a horror, I love horror):
A young family (mother, father, and little daughter) were getting ready for a Halloween party that was being held at their home. The mother had set up an apple bobbing station for them, had fun decorations, and had candy (of course)! After all the children and their parents arrived the father invited them down to the basement for a fun Halloween story/game. He turned the basement stairs into a slide, turned off the lights, and had everyone slide down into the cellar. Everyone found chairs that had been placed in circle. The man and his little girl were the last 2 left upstairs. When the father came down he started telling the tale of a scary witch, and in the story the witch was killed and chopped up. The man passed around various objects, stating that they were pieces of the witch (her innards, her hand, her head) while the children shrieked in delight (saying they knew this trick, and that they were household foods being passed around). The mother started asking her daughter if she was okay, or if this was scaring her...the daughter did not answer. The mother became frantic asking for her daughter to respond. The father said she's fine. Then...
Some idiot turned on the lights.
Very very disturbing and creepy story!
