WIN 20 STEEM - 2 Sentence Horror Stories Contest # 3 (Original Contest)

in contest •  6 months ago

I really enjoy the horror and scary genre, and some of these may not be for the faint of heart, but the gif above is from a wonderful short horror film you can find on youtube. However, I always want to keep Steemit interesting and introduce contests and engaging opportunities that I want to see here in our thriving, growing diverse community. I don't have much STEEM to give, but it's always important to give back, whether we have a little or a lot. So let's run to it!


RULES

How scary can you write a story within a two sentence frame? In order to be a valid entrant, please be sure to follow my other profile @peacemaker for more stories and other topics and Submit your 2 sentence horror story below in the comments section for it to be a valid entry. I will be now making this a weekly contest, maybe I'll rotate out some different contests as well. The deadline to submit is Sunday June 11th, 2017 at 11:59pm Germany time, so anyone entering on Next Monday will not be a valid entrant. One entry per person so give it your best shot. There are no length restrictions to a sentence as long as your two sentences are grammatically structured and readable. Don't rush, take your time, and check for spelling mistakes as it might ruin my experience reading your horror story on the first time through. Winners will be announced Monday. Please resteem this to spread the word and get more participants involved.

That should give you a more than enough time to think up something creative with a nice twist. I look forward to being spooked by your mini worlds of imaginative terror.

The winner will be announced on Monday, have fun brainstorming


Thank you for reading this post in its entirety, I hope you enjoyed it for what it's worth.



I'll still be continuing accepting donations until I can reach my goal to fly out to america with my children and wife to visit my family as it is very urgent indeed.



I've raised $1974 and .51 cents of Steemit Currency in total from both My Posts and Donations from Steemit Community Members this 2017 forward and $95.00 in US Dollar Donations so far towards my goal of $ 6,000.00 (Six Thousand) US Dollars and will keep everyone updated with every new future post that I submit.
This total amount will not only include donations I've received to the Paypal account I've provided: CompletelyQJS@yahoo.com, but it will also include the Steemit Currency that I accrue/receive from all of my personal posts starting the 1st of January of 2017 forward calculated after a 48 hour time frame is finished for the payout cycle of each post to avoid miscalculating the fluctuating price of Steemit Currency.

James heard his baby sister whining and fussing loudly from her crib in the nursery and started in her direction, but just before he reached the door his cousin Dave slapped his arm and shouted Tag, You're It'!
He laughed and chased him outside, but froze when he reached the lawn, the hairs on the back of his neck raising as he stared at his mother by the tree, his baby sister in her arms.

·

Thank you very much my friend for your eerie, creepy horror entry. Either he forgot he had twin sisters, or a demon was shapeshifting ready to possess him the moment he got close to the crib! The power of Christ compels you! lol

·
·

Definitely no twin sister. Not one that died either. So...yep, your explanation is as good as any!

I love the idea. Good luck everyone. Here comes my (en)try, probably uncommon horror:

"I came home from my 10 to 5 job like everyday and turned on the TV like everyday, watching what people do to each other, like everyday, doing nothing, changing nothing. Suddenly, like an epiphany it became clear to me... this is my life."

·

Thank you for your life draining entry. For those who aspire to be something more, this is indeed a horror story as they relive the What If scenarios in their mind in such a mundane repetitive life that is lacking something. Glad you enjoy this contest idea, I love reading the entries.

·

In order for your entry to be a valid entry, please read all the rules, you must follow my other account @peacemaker to be considered eligible for winning.

Ups... I thought, I clicked that follow button already... did so now!

·
·

Thanks, I have now added your valid entry to the newest post update of the contest

I was at the store holding my mother's hand when after a while she tapped me on the arm, while holding the knife she just bought in her other hand. It wasn't my mother.

·

so is this entered into the contest?

·
·

Yes it is now entered into the contest.

·
·
·

Thank you!!!

·
·
·
·

You're welcome

·

this is my entry

·

Thank you for your scary entry. What a horrifying situational entry for an innocent oblivious child.

·
·

Thank you!!!

Thanks for the contest! I'll submit my entry via meme...

·

Thank you for your philosophically thought provoking entry. But in order to be a valid entry, please read all the rules, you must follow my other account @peacemaker to be considered eligible for winning :)

·
·

Thanks for the reply! I have followed the other account, so can you consider my meme as my entry, now? :)

·
·
·

Yes, that was all that was need. You're very welcome.

-Good night hun'- and it kisses me in the cheek.
I live alone

·

Thank you for your short but effectively unsettling entry. But in order to be a valid entry, please read all the rules, you must follow my other account @peacemaker to be considered eligible for winning :)

·
·

OH GOD , I FORGOT ! Will do!

·
·
·

Thank you very much :) Many people have forgotten it seems in this contest so far and a couple in the last contest. It happens no worries

·
·
·
·

Thank you for replying so fast! :D

·
·
·
·
·

You're welcome, I do try when I am available

I knew I had to deal with whatever creature had been stealing my food for weeks. I followed the trail of crumbs into the crawlspace, turned the corner and saw a dirty, malnourished old man wiping the food out of his disheveled beard staring back at me, brandishing a kitchen knife.

·

Thank you for your intruder entry, that is indeed a terrible and creepy situation to discover, but at least you would have a fighting chance if the man was malnourished!

·

Few things creep me out more than the idea of someone secretly living in my house.

It was hard to breath as I felt the worms crawling in the dirt against my back, squirming down towards my tailbone like droplets of condensation falling down the side of a cold glass of water. Anxiety starts sinking in and my loved ones stand above me, in black, their tears fall like the dirt shoveled onto my face, leaving me with nothing but suffocation, regret, and an overwhelming knowing that this is it, this is the end.

·

Thank you for your very detailed burial entry. I felt as if I was the one being buried alive as I read it.

·
·

Thank you for making the contest! Fingers crossed that I win. 🤞glad you liked it. You will definitely see more entries from me on the future. 😀

·
·
·

You're very welcome. Winner will be announced Monday as well as a new contest. Best of luck!

·

Nice! Best of luck with this. I'm glad you took my offer and decided to join here as well.

I went to the cookie jar and got the last chocolate chip cookie. I took a bite,... it was oatmeal raisin... 0:

·

Thank you for your funny entry, it would only be a horror scene if you spontaneously combusted due to a hyperallegeric reaction to the oatmeal raisin cookie

·
·
·

Glad you like it! :)

·

Now that is creative. Great job.

·
·

Thank you very much! I wanted to do something slightly different and think outside the box to something everyone might be able to relate to in everyday life with a little humor twist to it.

I remembered..haha, I wasn't around this morning actually, and then I put up my post..and I broke my rule because I didn't want to run the risk of forgetting again. It looks like it went up a tad, so maybe it's already helping ;)
I'm definitely going to read the last ones though, I read a number of them the other day, but I'll see which ones I missed.

·

Thanks very much my friend, hope you enjoy reading them. They don't take too much time which is why I love this kind of contest :)

I was told that doors are portals for the soul but also for demons, i never took it into account, I have always been a Christian all my life and when I locked my daughter inside church after different signs of possession, I began to doubt. i felt frightened when I arrived at the church after picking up priest Michael and all the doors were open...

·

Thank you for your spiritually binding entry. But in order to be a valid entry, please read all the rules, you must follow my other account @peacemaker to be considered eligible for winning :)

·
·

@verbal-d Done! and sorry for that!

·
·
·

It's okay, you are not the only one. I appreciate it, thanks :)

My daughter was crying to my room because there was "a ghost" in her closet. When I open the closet door, my daughter, crying inside the closet, says "A ghost is in my bed daddy"

·

Thank you for your horrifying entry, I know of a horror story almost similar to this one :) In order for your entry to be a valid entry, please read all the rules, you must follow my other account @peacemaker to be considered eligible for winning.

·

that horror story really got to me

·
·

Yeah, I have read similar ones before, it definitely is creepy

·
·
·

the real question is which is really his daughter?

·
·
·
·

Truly, that is the kicker.

Granny always made the best pies I've ever tasted.
Tonight would be no exception as I was using a nice piece of Granny's thigh meat with a rich port wine.

·

Thank you very much for your sadistically cannibalistic entry. Wow lol that must have tasted like true home cooking with a lot of SOUL in that food. Yikes!

·
·

Glad you got it. LOL

·
·
·

Oh don't worry, I got it indeed. I am a horror fanatic since a young child thanks to my mom.

·
·
·
·

That's cool! I can barely handle horror as and older student let alone as a young child. I love horror. Just so you know this is NOT my horror entry.

·
·
·
·
·

No worries, I know it is not an entry. Thanks for stopping by and checking out this contest. Horror is such an adrenaline rush, especially when I know it is make believe or based on factual experience, either way it is as an art form a great source of entertainment and creativity

·
·
·
·
·
·

The black van swerved within inches of the swaddled infant, leaving her golden locks untouched. The nanny cursed under her breath for not pushing fast enough.

·

Thanks for your attempted murder entry. I don't trust nannies, no no no.

·
·

Thank you.

·
·
·

I was followed only by the wind,
but i knew they were there, they just didn't care.

·

Thank you for your mysterious entry. But in order to be a valid entry, please read all the rules, you must follow my other account @peacemaker to be considered eligible for winning :)

·
·

Done!!!!

two lines is mighty short to build the suspense )) I have to think on it a little more, will get back to you if i come up with some thing which is worthy !1 take care of yourself my friend !! Steem On Mr D )

·

That is what makes it a proper challenge my friend! I will introduce a new contest very soon :) Thanks so much, looking forward to your entry Vibz

·
·

Do you know when your next contest will be?

·
·
·

Always on Mondays, I announce the winners on Monday and start new contests on Mondays, so you still have time to enter into this current contest #3 up until Sunday which is the deadline. But next Monday I might introduce a new theme and rotate different contests.

This is a great contest and I hope you enjoy this dark story!!

I killed him because he controlled me in every aspect of my life from when I ate to where I walked, even the time at which I fell asleep, that is for the nights he let me. He needed to die so that I could live, but the problem was to kill my mind, I needed die, which in the end is what he wanted all along.

·

Thank you for you the psychologically disturbing entry, The mind can be a truly harmful predator to its own vessel!

He made sure the car door was locked, the windows were rolled up tight and nothing valuable was left on the back seat to tempt thieves. "Bye-bye, snoogums" he cooed to his baby.

·

Thank you very much for your sick and careless horror story entry. How heartless this father must have been, it angers me if I do say so. A definitely frightening situation for the abandoned baby, I could only imagine the worst with it maybe also being the summertime in the scorching heat, or the winter time in the blistering cold.

·
·

Or if he's leaving for a business trip and won't be back for weeks. Let your mind fill in the horror.

·
·
·

That could be it too! Less is more sometimes in the genre of horror :)

Best horror story ever:

He awoke for the third time that night to the same strange noise, and asked her what was wrong. Her reply was simply: "I'm pregnant again"

AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!

·

Thank you for your funny entry, it definitely made me smirk. It could be indeed a horror story depending on the situation, especially if it's unplanned. But in order to be a valid entry, please read all the rules, you must follow my other account @peacemaker to be considered eligible for winning :)

·
·

@cryptomomma is about to have my second son any day now. After this one, I'm finished having children, so that may be my biggest source of nightmares until I get my vasectomy... 😅

·
·
·

Nice on the second son, that's beautiful congratulations, I edited my initial reply sorry, I need you to follow @peacemaker for your entry to be valid. Thank you.

·
·
·
·

I stared down as the inky mess spilled out from my gaping wound, chunks of filth and void and death falling through my outstretched hands while cackles of laughter echoed in the background. Now that I knew what was in those old photos and why they were hidden, I found out all too late why I shouldn't have touched them.

·

Thank you for your creepy, original and very supernatural horror story entry. I have had some crazy experiences regarding old family photos. The memories of them make me shudder!

·
·

And thank YOU for hosting something to get the creative juices rumbling. Just the break I needed! Little accomplished tasks make it so much easier to tackle the big stuff!

·
·
·

I completely agree, my contests are actually a way for us all to tackle writer's block and train our creativity in many ways :) You are most welcome

I tied the rocks to the body. I sighed with relief as I dumped it off the pier, but something wrapped around my leg and pulled me in.

·

Thank you for your deep end hook and sinker entry. Definitely a horrifying ending for an almost victorious murderer.

Who won last week? There were some very good shorts..

·

This was not my entry btw ;)

·
·

Check my previous post bro! lol There were indeed some good entries.

·
·
·

Oh I guess Monday isn't over yet... So no winner posted..unless i missed it somehow..

·
·
·
·

I don't know where you are located bro, but I live in germany and I even state that in the rules for when the deadline is. I pick the winners monday and announce the new contest on mondays. Here is the post I made, here it is already tuesday. I am 9 hours ahead of california, it is past midnight here in germany

https://steemit.com/contest/@verbal-d/2-sentence-horror-stories-contest-2-announcing-the-winner-of-20-steem-original-contest

you just had to scroll down slightly on my profile, like 3 posts or 2 lol

·
·
·
·
·

Really!? dammit lol. I looked at last weeks contest and didn't see it anywhere :(

Monday evening here in Canada.

·
·
·
·
·
·

It's all good, I'm nearly half a day ahead of you, but you have almost a week's time to enter in

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I've already written two today, they're okay. I don't think they they are winners though...after reading the competition last week I gotta step it up !

·
·
·
·
·

Ah yes I remember that one, worthy of the win. I also thought the steemit account disappearing was another fav.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Yeah, they were both good but the steemit account was too similar to last week's entry about logging into poloniex account and finding all crypto gone.

Everything was perfect after death; I won the jackpot at the casino each day, my wife never complained, and there were no challenges. I screamed to God, "A life is unbearable without hardship, risk, or challenges", and a deep dark voice responded, "Haha, you really think you are in Heaven?"

·

Thanks again bro for your heaven & hell twisted horror entry. That truly puts things into a very interesting perspective. I like the ending punchline :)

·
·

This contest is totally cool.

·
·
·

Thanks bro, can't wait to share more ideas

A lady asked for a lift on his bike. He denied, sometime later he felt the weight on backseat.

·

Thank you for your persistence entry, however your entry is not valid due to it being three sentences. The rule is two sentences, so please fix your entry.

·
·
·
·
·

Sorry, but your entry is still three sentences.

  1. A lady asked for a lift on his bike.

  2. He denied.

  3. He felt the weight on backseat.

A valid entry must only be two sentences.

·
·
·
·

Is it fine now? This must have ruined the experience.

·
·
·
·
·

Yes it is perfectly fine now, it didn't ruin the experience but now you have a valid entry and you know now for next contest next week as well.

Haha,nice contest🙂

·

Thank you very much, please do participate if you have an terror-ific idea lol

One more sentence would have made that... "What was in the crib?"
Especially since this is based on a true story, it happened to my husband when he was a kid....

·

did they figure it out?

·
·

No, he never did find out what that was, it still creeps him out to this day, haha!

·
·
·
·

Crazy, I have some real genuine stories to tell which I will write about soon, that is indeed a horrifying experience, one he will never forget, thanks for the backstory! And the What was in the crib? addition, I feel isn't needed because that very question pops into the mind after reading your initial two sentences :)

by the way i love the gif on this page. (The one with the girl about to uncover a creature.)

·

Thanks, that is from a short horror film on youtube called Bedfellows. :) It is a pretty awesome 2 minute film

·
·

i'll have to go watch it

I enjoyed your last contest and thank you for the prize!

Here's my entry for this week.

“Mum, let me in, it’s cold here, let me in,” he said.
I can’t see him; I know it’s not my son, he’s lying in the morgue awaiting tests to find out more on the mystery illness that took him.

·

You are most welcome, thank you for another eerily unsettling entry. I would start praying immediately to rebuke whatever evil spirit was impersonating my dead son.

·
·

I'm not sure praying would be enough ;)

Sigh... Not sure which story to submit. I like this one mostly because of the twist: Here she goes titled "Unwelcome Guests"

Olivia wasn’t expecting company and the floor creaked and cracked as she peered through the peephole. Absolutely mortified by the most horrific sight, she desperately tried to stay calm; then, she heard the shrill sound of her mother in law’s voice, “open up, I know you’re in there!”

·

Lol thanks for your comically horrorifying entry, I do know some people have had some pretty bad experiences with their mother in laws so I see it from both ends. Thank god my mother in law is a very kind lady, more than tolerable :)

·
·

Ya of course! Some are great some are terrible for sure. I tried to capture the horror of having to deal with one you dislike unexpectedly. There was this whole other half, where Olivia slips over the banister while trying to make a break for the back door and accidentally hangs herself on a theraband... It seemed like it was a little much tho so left it out.

·
·
·

haha, yeah that does seem a bit over the top, but honestly bro, I am so clumsy, it could happen to me if I rush, I recently did something very stupid and painful, but I'll maybe post that later on. lol

·
·
·
·

haha, we all have our moments.

·
·
·
·
·

I seem to have more than many :)

He locked all of the doors and turned off some of the main lights, but then circled around with some curiosity to see if the lady in the dining room had finally stopped her stubborn twitching, those last desperate nerves and muscles giving in to the greyish expression of mortal surprise on her face after being hung from the overhead lamp fixture with a few good loops of that dental floss that she'd asked for. She had.

·

Thank you for hanging your murderous and dreadful entry in the comments section, but in order to be a valid entry, please read all the rules, you must follow my other account @peacemaker to be considered eligible for winning :) Once you do so, I shall add you to the post above, thanks again.

·
·

Oh I could've sworn I'd already followed you there, now it's done. Thanks for the contest, a lot of good entries so far-- I resteemed for more.

·
·
·

Thank you very much for following and the resteem, appreciate that, I will add your valid entry to the new post, not the one you resteemed but the See All The Entries So Far update of the contest

·
·
·
·

Awesome thank you, I went to follow there the other day and somehow forgot to click.

·
·
·
·
·

No worries, it's all good, you're very welcome

·

Yikes, that is a very vivid image! I like that the first sentence is a mile and the second one is two words. It emphasizes the stubborn twitching. I'm going to his updated post to vote in a bit:)

·
·

The first one was so long that it nearly got too far away from why he'd circled back around.
Thanks for reading and commenting, I was afraid it was too horrible to write.

Spending time at the lake house to work out his feelings. Waking from a dream, he finds he's being eaten alive by something dark and wet with several eyes.

·

Thank you for your monstrously agonizing entry, but in order to be a valid entry, please read all the rules, you must follow my other account @peacemaker to be considered eligible for winning :) Once you do so, I shall add you to the post above, thanks again.

·
·

I do follow that account! At least, when I go there, it says, "unfollow"...

·
·
·

Thank you for the update, I will add your valid entry to the post. No worries :) New contest starts this Monday as well as the winner will be announced.

·
·
·
·

Thank you!

·
·
·
·
·

You're very welcome, the winner has been announced. New contest will be posted later today :)

Dinner


"Eat your dinner or go to bed right now" she commanded in an angry voice while maintaining that lovely smile as I sat there silently obeying, too weak to offer any resistance, for the sixth or seventh night in a row.

I did my best to swallow every horrible mouthful in order to avoid an early bedtime or a beating all the while knowing that it wasn't something I would normally be forced to eat and having no idea that the last mouthful was the last thing I would see of my father.

Dinner

·

Thank you for your dreadfully cannibalistic and starvation tactic entry. I hope the little boy had lots of ketchup and hot sauce lol. I shall add it to the post above.

·
·

That little boy doesn't want to talk about it an further, but thank you any way.

"Thirst and Hunger are the only feelings i have and only your flesh and blood can satisfy me" - he growled at me as he jerked the knife out and licked it. "Please, not like this..." - i tried to cry out but only a tear rolled down my cheek while my consciousness started to fade away.

·

Thank you for your psycho cannibalistic entry, sounds like she was drugged or her brain was protecting her from the overkill of excruciating pain.

·
·

Drugged? May be, may be. Without pain it becomes even more thrilling because it gives the victim time to think and to feel the surrealism of the situation. He is a pretty weird psycho. May be she will be killed and eaten or may be he was just frightening her and she will woke up at her bed unharmed next morning. Or it can be just a nightmare inspired by some psychological conflicts. We will never know)

It is just after-noon on the twentieth day of the first month of the year two thousand and seventeen.

"Congratulations Madam President."

·

Thank you for your Hilary Clinton horror entry, anyone but her please :)
