Short Story: In the Dark

[Last week one of the people I follow on Twitter challenged his followers to write a creepy bedtime story within one tweet. The following story is what I came up with. Enjoy!]

The neighbor’s husky is barking. Growling. From bed, I reach and pull back the drapes. Nothing.

The growl becomes a whine. I look again. On the fence is a Sphynx cat, bigger than the dog. It sees me.

I pull the covers over my head. Claws shred my window screen. It’s laughing.

[What’s the creepiest story you could write in 280 characters? I’d love to read it! Feel free to post something in the comments, send me a link to your flash fiction, or tweet me @ScaryJASullivan]
