Here is the last of my spooky Halloween offerings. The prompt was: Was it a knock that had woken her? My 100 word story follows. 🙂

October 29


            Tammy’s eyes opened slowly. Was it a knock that had woken her? A couple more soft thumps on the roof and telltale rolling sounds confirmed her suspicions.

            Walnuts. Dropping off the tree.  Who would be this far from town at three in the morning anyway?

            She was drifting back to sleep when she heard two soft knocks, coming from inside the headboard of her bed.

            She froze.

            Then two knocks from the closet. Then soft knocks continually from the bathroom.

            She grabbed her pepper spray and stumbled into the bathroom. Her hollow-eyed reflection inside the mirror knocked while she watched.

    I don’t need my reflection having a mind of its own. This can only lead to madness. Wonderfully awesome madness.

    That would be really horrid. that pepper spray isn’t going to do her any good.
