After being
awoken by the sound of something feral racing around in my backyard, I was
relieved to hear the familiar sound of my dog coming through the pet door. It
wasn't until I noticed him asleep on my bedroom floor that I truly began to

hallway and kitchen lights wouldn't work. I'd just reached the living room lamp
when a voice behind me whispered "That one's broken, too."

Though I
was initially happy to hear my son had gotten over the fear of the monster under
his bed, it didn't last. "Oh, no, daddy," he explained, "it told me it was

I had
just left town when I noticed a car that had apparently run off the side of the
road and pulled over to help. "Thanks for stopping," the paper in the empty
driver's seat read, "now turn around."

I woke
up in the middle of the night from a glass tapping noise which I feared was
coming from outside my window. I then realized it was coming from the

I can say, this is quite unique, and my first time, reading something in such a strange form. Each tidbit of a story was different from the last, much to my surprise; since I've never heard about a two sentence horror story before. I wish I had been afraid, but didn't really feel much from reading it. Don't get me wrong, it was entertaining to read! Just something that doesn't quite reach me in the scare factor. C:
