The Entrée

Lisa nervously eyed the empty dining room. Maybe it’d been dumb going alone to meet someone she’d only talked to online. But he was so nice. He’d made her feel special.
   “There you are.”
   Lisa smiled at the sound of his voice. She quivered at the feel of his hands on her shoulders.
    “So beautiful,” he whispered, and slid the needle into her arm.
   Tears dripped down her face as she woke atop the table, unable to move. Men in black surrounded her and began carving her tender flesh.
   “Let’s eat,” someone said. “Leg? Who wants white meat?”
(98 words.)

Today's Question:   What story/book freaked you out the most and why?


  Read my take on the Borden murders  in Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter: 

Every family has its secrets…

 One hot August morning in 1892, Lizzie Borden picked up an axe and murdered her father and stepmother. Newspapers claim she did it for the oldest of reasons: family conflicts, jealousy and greed. But what if her parents were already dead? What if Lizzie slaughtered them because they’d become... zombies? (Also read with Kindle Library and Kindle Unlimited)

  1. Great, gruesome little tale. Loved it. Can't beat a good bit of cannibal literature :) x Happy Day 2 of the blog.

  2. Love flash fiction! A nice 'meaty' story ;) I can't think of anything that really freaked me out. Although psychological terror gives me chills. Having someone in your head manipulating you is frightening to me.

  5. That's why online dating is 'off the table' for me (pardon the pun). Gruesome little tale.

    As for your question: The Road by Cormac McCarthy, which is one of my favorite books, definitely freaks me out because of its bleak realism and the fact that I couldn't imagine trying to keep one of my sons alive in that desperate world the author created.
