Short Stories - Horror

Short stories are works of brief narrative prose, which usually focus on a limited number of characters and a single, decisive plot incident. Significantly shorter and more compact than novels, short stories leave the reader with a snapshot or slice of life.

Don't let it find you. Don't let it want you. Don't let it touch you. Don't go anywhere alone. Don't take down the cross on your door. Don't talk to strangers. Don't let it charm you. Otherwise, you will be taken.

Short stories that I wrote while bored (usually procrastinating coursework of some sort haha). They are about one to two pages and I will write them but will not spend hours working on them so they are raw.

Historical Fiction may take place during extraordinary historical events, but it doesn't have to. Historical Fiction can cover any period of time that would be considered the past.
