#1MinFiction: Knock, Knock

“Don’t open the door!” Jason screams. He dives toward me, shoulder first, and slams it shut just as I’m turning the knob, pulling it back.

“Are you nuts? Mom is out there!”

He twists the dead bolt. “Can’t you see? Mom is gone.”

On the other side, low guttural moans increase. Shuffling of feet, a frantic clawing against the wood . . .


Monday’s One-Minute Fiction challenges you to write a story in one minute, no more, no less, based on the prompt provided. October will be full of terrifying Halloween-themed prompts. Today’s prompt is: don’t open the door.

Let me know I'm not talking to myself.
