Festival of Drabbles 2015 - People's Choice Winner
The drabble contest for the festival saw some superb entries and I posted my winner yesterday - and today is the turn of the People's Choice - which drabble received the most votes.
And the winner is Tracey Holmes and her drabble 'The Monster'.
I've also drawn the four winners from those who voted and commented, they are: P.S. Joshi, Nicole J Simms, Lexie Conyngham and G. J. Reilly.
Congratulations to the winners and now let's enjoy Tracey's drabble...
Tracey Holmes - The Monster
The grey-skinned creature leaned towards Timothy, its dark soulless eyes glaring.
A layer of sweat formed on Timothy’s brow.
He was wounded. The monster had already clawed his face with a groping hand, but the worst was yet to come.
The creature lunged again, grabbing him by his shoulder its talon like fingers digging into flesh, drawing blood. It bared yellowed teeth and mouthed Timothy's name, its fetid breath made him gag, sticky mucus clung to the corners of its wrinkly skin.
He swallowed, he knew what was coming next.
"Go on love, give Grandma a kiss," his mother said.
