Another flash fiction contest - Janet Reid

Since I'm enjoying these flash fiction contests so much, I tried another one.  This one has a Halloween theme to it:

Here are the parameters:

Write a Halloween themed story using 100 words or fewer.  Use these words in the story:






Bonus points if you also use the word: Insalubrious

And here's my entry:

“Who did Dracula take to the prom?” The paisley print sheet with eye-holes stands at the door, treat bag open.
 Like I didn’t remember the purple ghost from the last two times.

“His ghoulfriend!”

“You slay me.” I try not to sound like that which rhymes with witch.

I console myself, knowing the insalubrious treats will result in tooth decay.

I’ve had enough of precious, unforsaken tots. I am turning off the porch light when a werewolf wanna-be approaches. He’s too old for trick-or-treating. I pretend not to notice his leer as he follows me inside.

My deadly fangs unfurl.


Here is the link if you want to read the other entries.  No voting or anything this time.  Just sharing.
