For some reason, some friends and I have been on this kick lately of getting scared. There have been some minor pranks with rubber snakes at my house, and last Saturday we watched a great old movie called, “Wait Until Dark” with Audrey Hepburn. It was fantastic; nostalgic and suspenseful at the same time. So there has been this theme the last couple weeks with the thrill of fear.
Anyway, my friend introduced us to a wonderful literary device called, “The Two Sentence Horror Story.” If you google the term, you will see that there are a lot of them out there. Some are really frightening. So we decided to have our own little competition today, and I think I came up with some pretty good ones. Check them out below if you dare . . . . Bwah hah hah ha ha ha.
My mouth watered as I bit into the ultimate American cheeseburger. Then I tasted blood.
The night crept its way into pure blackness. I reached my hands in front of me, and I felt hot breath and a long protruding nose.
I sighed with relief when I woke up from the nightmare of being paralyzed. I realized I needed to use the bathroom, and then I realized I couldn’t feel my legs.
My heart almost stopped beating as I bent down to kiss your cold cheek for the last time. Then it almost leapt from my chest as I felt your icy fingers around my neck.
Perhaps the scariest one of all was submitted by my sister:
I’m out of chocolate. The stores are all closed.
That’s what I call frightening people!!
If you feel motivated, you should try some two sentence horror stories of your own. They’re not only thrilling . . . They’re a lot of fun. 🙂
