The banging continued and Kelly thought about hiding behind the machine but then realised that was ridiculous because anyone would see her and also she wanted to get out of here, so it was best if she were discovered.
"Help me!" she shouted, running to the door and returning the thumps with her fists. "I'm trapped in here and I can't get out."
The banging stopped. And for a moment Kelly thought the person on the other side of the door had gone away. Then, "What are you doing in my kitchen?" The voice sounded like that of a young boy, but it strangely sounded old as well as young.
"I'm sorry," Kelly called through the door. "I didn't know it was your kitchen. Could you let me out?"
"Of course, it's my kitchen! Can you not smell I am trying to cook plum cobbler." Kelly looked over at the broken machine. It didn't look much like an oven. The sign "Seed Saving" still hung over it.
"I did smell that! And it smells delicious! Could you come in and serve me some."
There was a silence and then, "I don't want to share my plum cobbler."
As usual, I started with the freewrite prompt and used themostdangerouswritingapp.com to write the first five minutes (and then popped it into google docs to check for errors and tidy it up a bit):
9 tales of MURDER from some of your favourite STEEM writers!
Check out the trailer for the book!
I have a story in it called The Still Blood-Soaked Path
A YouTube documentary film-maker visits a remote island to investigate the horrific murder of a young woman, and the subsequent suicide of her killer almost thirty years ago. But was the young lover really responsible for the brutal slaying of his girlfriend? And if not who was?
I had a comment left on one of my freewrites and I have to say, it made my day!
“Hey I got the book and want to tell you how much I enjoyed your story! Loved the twist at the end… you somehow nearly always manage to produce an unexpected twist... Love the care you take with your characters, intertwining them.” @owasco
Voices In The Darkness is now ALSO available as a paperback!
If you want a taster of what is in the book, the video below shows me reading the first 900 words, or so, of my story, The Tell-Tale Dead
