Of magic and more



Hi! Dear God, it’s been ages since I wrote FF, and I’m rather ashamed of myself for missing out and going off the grid like that, but when exams call, one has few options but to yield. Bleh! I think exams are mankind’s worst invention. To all those people who were sweet enough to leave me comments on my last two FF posts, I’m really sorry I couldn’t return the favour.

So anyhoo, here’s my 11th time writing FF a fun 100 word writing challenge hosted by our very own Rochelle, and the picture prompt this week was

Here are my 90 words πŸ™‚



β€œDaddy, play with me.” Robby wouldn’t stop pestering Dan.

But Dan hadn’t meant to push his stepson away, hadn’t meant for the child to fall on the whirring chainsaw and die.

Dan fled his workshop to escape the sight of Robbie’s head rolling in a pool of blood.

He needed to think clearly. He needed to-

The playroom door creaked open. A small boy stood there, the moonlight illuminating the splatters of gore on his body.

Dan’s scream was drowned out by the moving chainsaw.

β€œDaddy, play with me.”

Hi! I'm Sam, an 18 year old certified mad chick who likes to imagine that she can write. I live in India, a colourful, diverse country which is sadly getting polluted everyday by more and more violence....something no citizen can be proud of. I enjoy reading-basically horror, watching romcoms and horror flicks(yes, again horror, my favourite being Sinister- its psychotic just like me), eating( food, oh yes, I love foooooood), attending college, and most of all(oh, do stay and listen a while longer) I love animals. I have periodic urges to own and look random "pets". Currently I wish to own a baby elephant, which I will name Thama. I write to express what I feel, to keep that small creative bone alive in my body, and to make readers happy. I hope you like what I write!

  1. Holy moly! Very graphic, I wasn’t expecting that from the title.
    Great ending – looks like fleeing the workshop was in vain after all.

  2. Oy, that was really gory!! Freaky ending.

  3. Dear Sam,

    That was creepy. Guess Dan’s going to be playing a game he hadn’t bargained for.

    Hope you did well on your exams.



  4. Ack!Step Dad is sure in dire trouble πŸ˜‰ Great story tinkerbelle πŸ˜€

  5. My goodness! What a chilly story. Brilliantly done.

  6. wow…playtime gone bad. i like it! πŸ™‚

  7. Dear Tink, or Sam, WOW – what a scary story and so vivid. Daddy will be playing with him from now on, I think. Why, in the heck, would he play with kids around a chain saw. I’m just saying . . . Really well written, gruesome, evil, and excellent! Good job. Nan πŸ™‚

  8. Well written but a little too vivid for my taste. Done well.

  9. Yikes! Therapy time for Dan in a big way and maybe an exorcism or something.
