Micro-Fiction – 11

None of the keys fit into the lock. The house had been abandoned for years. As they tried another, a voice called out from inside, “Hello?”

 ———————————————————————-

“Last cell on the left,” the orderly said. She saw the human test subject – half a frayed wing on his back and compound eyes on his face.

———————————————————————–

“Daddy’ll be home soon,” he told her every time over the phone. When he went back, there was no house,no daughter. It had all burned down.

———————————————————————–

He’d been on the phone with me when his car crashed. It threw us into a time loop, with me having to make that call every day and hear him die.

———————————————————————–  

She disappeared without a trace. Her journal entry mentioned a call about aliens (?) but that’s just conspiracy theorists making stuff up.

 ———————————————————————–  

She saw red when his new girlfriend insulted her. Wild with rage, she pinned the girl down and pushed the chopstick into her eye.

———————————————————————–  

It was a lovely day for a swim. But without a warning, she was torn apart. All she saw was blood.
They thought it was a shark.

It wasn’t.

———————————————————————–  

All serial killers have quirks. This one had one too – he sliced off the eyelids of all his victims, leaving their eyes open and bloodied.

———————————————————————–  

For years they searched for the missing plane. The little boy, now grown up, never spoke a word about the brief flash of fire he’d seen.

———————————————————————– 

It was time. Humans had finally rendered the devil redundant. Unemployed and furious, he raised hell’s fire to the skies.

———————————————————————– 

The endless night had sucked all their hope. They were thankful when they finally saw the fog clearing. Then they saw the flaming sky.

———————————————————————– 

She insisted she saw eyes in the dark They called her schizophrenic One by one, she killed them all And then, she scooped their eyes out

———————————————————————–  

The lake – its cold waters called out to me. Curiosity overrode fear & I peered in. In the dark, my reflection had red, smoldering eyes.

———————————————————————– 

The cracks in the road should have been the first warning. But by the time the bloodsucking creatures flew out, it was too late.

———————————————————————– 

For many nights she wondered why he screamed “I am here!” One night, he was so close that she finally asked,”Who are you?”

 ———————————————————————–  

“Why!” He choked out in agony as she twisted the knife in his ear “You spread a lot of hate against me. Now I am giving you a reason.”

———————————————————————– 

They watched fascinated as the shoots rose from the cracks in the parched earth. But they penetrated people’s heels, killing them slowly.

    Actually, Indrani, I've toned down the horror a lot lately. You should read the earlier editions. They were way worse, IMO.
