Never Trust Craigslist
Just because New Adult Romance is so popular, doesn't mean we can't do horror! Bring on all the things that go bump in the night, because you're never too old for a good scare.
This might be our first Halloween Vault here at @NA, but we're diving in and ready for action. What sets New Adult apart from the rest? Protagonists that are enthusiastic about facing the adult world, but don't really have a clue what they're doing yet.
How does this translate to a spooky story? With new beginnings, of course!
Your protagonist is starting University, ready to begin their adult life away from home. To cut costs, they answered an ad looking for a roommate in a two-bedroom apartment near campus.
But when they arrive at their new place, they're horrified by what they find there.
In 500 words or less, describe your protagonist's experience stepping into that apartment for the first time! What do they see? Is there something wrong with the place? Their roommate? The possibilities are endless!
