A friend of mine sent me this picture randomly with the following prompt:
Write ONE scary paragraph about this picture. Be creative. Scare the pants of me!
Here's what I wrote:
The blare of the afternoon sun glinted on a distant window. She shook her head to clear it. Had she seen something? She continued on her walk back from school. It had been a face, pale and smeared--had those painted lips been grinning at her? Had that been real? She skipped up the porch and pushed open the door. Inside her house it was unusually dark. It was waiting for her.
