#ScaryYAH: Two Sentence Horror Story #2

Happy Saturday, Spookies!!

Welcome to the second round of Two Sentence Horror Story. This feature was inspired by a fun flurry of posts last year all across the internet that displayed brilliant (and very creepy) stories that were only two sentences in length, total.

Prize Schedule:

Every single participant of the game is automatically entered to win a prize for the three times a year when names will be randomly drawn. These dates are:

Friday the 13th (of March) 2015

Saturday, October 31st, 2015 (in honor of Halloween and Dia de los Muertos)

Friday the 13th (of November) 2015

The more you participate, the higher a chance you have of winning! Prizes will include things ranging from scary books to DVDs to horror trinkets guaranteed to send shivers down your spine.

How To Play:

Every month, Amy or I will post a photo prompt to inspire your two sentence horror story. Once you have yours ready to go, you can either:

a) Post it in the comments below
b) Tweet your two sentence horror story (if it fits!) with the hashtag #ScaryYAH
c) Post the story on Tumblr and tag it with #ScaryYAH

Every month, we will post our favorite entry from the previous round. Winners will get an additional entry for a prize on top of their participant entry. Pretty straight forward, right? We are so excited to read, retweet, and reblog your entries!

Our favorite entry from last month (which was a very hard decision! You guys had great two sentence stories) comes from Ashleigh Paige: "She never thought one man's body could spill enough blood to coat a warehouse floor. The way it softened her hardened feet made her wish she'd cut up the last three the same way."


This Week:

Amy's entry: "After all this time, she was still full of lies. The only way to get them out, I knew, was to cut them free."
Kaitlin's entry: "It was her knife that I held in my hand. This began with her knife, it only felt fitting that it end the same way."

Your turn!

  1. "Grandma, what a big knife you have," Red exclaimed. "All the better to see your insides with, my dear," Grandma said.

  2. It is against the rules of this reaping to kill when their back is turned, but this year's reaping only has one sacrificial lamb so I must be first! None of the other competitors are close by so who would know, especially if I aim for the side of the neck and not the back.
