Writing Prompt: Today you can write about anything, in whatever genre or form, but your post must mention a dark night, your fridge, and tears (of joy or sadness; your call). Feel free to switch one ingredient if you have to (or revisit one from previous trio prompts).
Today, is Halloween and it’s your favorite holiday, the treats, the costumes and the scary movies! You’ve decided to spend your Friday night with your three favorite guys, Ben, Jerry and Freddie (Kruger), it’s Halloween and you don’t have any plans.. besides it’s becoming a tradition Movie is set in the DVR, Lights are turned of , so that it’s nice and dark, you sit down one the couch ready to start the movie when you realize you have left Ben and Jerry in the fridge.
Crap! It’s dark tonight, so you should probably turn the lights back on… Wait! what’s that noise? You search out for your cat, then you realize that she’s sitting next to you snoozing away…. What the hell is that noise?! You pause the movie to hear better…. there is it again. So here’s the thing you can either die with a tub of ice cream next to your cat , or you die like a champ with a bat in your hand.
You slowly creep to the door when all of the sudden you feel the most excruciating pain you’ve ever felt. That damn end table… you promised yourself that you were gonna move it yesterday and you didn’t.. and now you’re have a possible broken toe, you fall to the floor tears falling down your face, holding on to your precious throbbing baby toe. You momentarily forgotten about the mass murder at your door when all of the sudden you hear your phone ringing, “Hello?”, you answer. “Tyra, what’s wrong I hear you crying through the door” my mom replies. “That was you outside making all that noise?” you ask one the verge of hysteria, “Duh!, you told me to come over, open the door, I gotta pee!”
You open the door to find your mother with a package of cookies, so naturally all is forgiven.
Until Next Time,
