The next 100 word story based on the prompt: “You find a box in the attic that isn’t yours.”


WonHundred Wednesday 5_14

“David? Did you already put something up here?”

His voice was muffed behind the stack of moving boxes. I stood on the ladder to the attic and stared. The space was empty except one thing, right in the middle. A box. Not a cardboard box, or a lovely hat box, or even a wooden box.

This monstrosity looked older than our ancient house—hewn from stone and covered in markings resembling the runes I’d seen in a Norse drinking game. Chains surrounded it, rusting as they sat.

I watched and the box lurched forward an inch.

“Honey? Come here please…”


Now you can check out everyone else’s!

    Yikes! For some reason it sort of reminded me of the movie Jamanji.

    It’s that box from Thor!


  4. I love how it’s lurching toward her and she’s all calm.


  5. Creepy! …but now I want to read about what happens when the box opens. We all know it has to open. Great feeling of confused dread here. Love it!

    For some reason I was thinking of Jumanji at the end of this. I want to see what’s in that thing! 😀

    What’s in it? The chains make it seem extra evil!
