Two sentence terrible tale!

Posted by mrstyler on Oct-28-2014

Halloween is nearly here!

I challenge you to write a two sentence terrible tale!

It is just as it sounds. Two sentences, the first setting the scene and the second delivering the twist. You need to lead the reader astray and then pounce an unexpected ending. Use lots of  detail for the best effect. Don’t forget all the punctuation!
Here is one I adapted from another that I’ve read:

On hearing her mum call to her from downstairs, Tess slipped out of her cosy bed and obediently headed, bearfooted, out of her room. As soon as she approached the staircase, she was grabbed painfully tightly by whitened fingers on her elbow and pulled sideways into the hall cupboard as her white-eyed mum whispered frantically,
“Yes, I heard it too.”

Have fun!
