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.

The stories that have been written in this book are all base from the famous fairytale stories. All of these stories are wicked and twisted within its context. Advisable that do not take it by heart.

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.

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.
