My story. It is some words.
Crawling out of the cavern, I found I could not breathe. Blinding light pierced my eyes momentarily. Muffled voices assaulted my ears. Still I could not breathe. Darkness flooded my eyes, suffocating my vision. Silence.

"I'm so sorry," someone said.

"He's stillborn."

Tears rolled down her icy flesh.

I'm bored with nothing better to do at 3:30am so I'll point out that yeah, in the rhyme it's not mentioned he's an egg, because it's not. It's a cannon.

A trawler in a storm. Overboard. The remorseless chill of the Baltic. Submerged. Icy waves overpower me, my body numb. Powerless. Screaming for air, water enters my lungs. Desperate. I screech for help, but nobody hears.

Death's cold hand grips me tight and pulls me under, never to rise again.

The rusty gate squealed in the rain and gloom.
A young adult sat in the darkness of their room, reading.
Footsteps on the mossy path.
Thunder rolling in the clouds.
Glass shatters in the night.
Wooden stairs creak.
The reader runs.
A fight.

A scream.


No more young adult.

I'm on a train. I'm going to Manchester. I'm going to see Hoyle, Gazooki and Kaeetayel.
Good luck sleeping after that

I picked at the oozing flesh. I put it in my mouth. I had not eaten raw flesh before. I thought it would taste disgusting. As the blood ran down my chin I realised I loved it. I would miss my leg. Better than dying trapped in the dark though.

Sorry for doing this late, but here are the results!

Third Place

A lovely little piece which leave a lot up to the imagination, which is the very essence of a good horror. I like how the text's reader is the subject in this story. Missed out on a higher spot because the dangers isn't as relatable as I'd like (for example, I have no garden). Loved the ending though.

Second Place
Wrathy wrote:A trawler in a storm. Overboard. The remorseless chill of the Baltic. Submerged. Icy waves overpower me, my body numb. Powerless. Screaming for air, water enters my lungs. Desperate. I screech for help, but nobody hears.

Although this leaves very little to the imagination, I placed this here because of the brilliant description. While reading, I really got a sense of drowning, and Wrathy presented a very realistic horror. I'd love to read a much longer version of this. The ending is predictable, but that only adds to the horror. There are no happy endings to be had amidst the cold waves of the deep sea.

This was very close to VtheYoshi's story, but this was the one that surprised me the most. Not only is it gruesome, but it's really chilling to suggest that the narrator has depersonalisation-derealisation disorder. The six sentences give a sense of a much bigger story going on behind the scenes, why is the protagonist dying? Where are they? What drove them to self-cannibalism? Brilliant story, well done for winning :)

Thanks to everyone who entered, hoped you enjoyed taking part as much as I did :)
My apologies if you didn't place, but a massive thank you to all who participated :D

Thank you.... really glad you liked it

The idea was that they were in a cave, they had fell and broken there leg and couldn't get out.... they were hoping to get rescued and slowly through hunger went a little insane in the darkness... They reasoned that there leg was past it as it was oozing and wouldnt support there weight and if anything was just hurting them and getting in there way so began to eat it as an attempt at hanging on...

Its scary on the level of the possibility of dying alone and afraid... the idea of what you or I as a person might become given a horrible accident/event and the things we would turn to in order to try and prolong our own lives in that kind of situation.

Yours didn't place because I'd heard one a lot like it before and I saw the ending coming from the first sentence. I'm sorry, it was very well written nonetheless :)

I wasn't planning on doing a round 2... But I was going to do a "write a christmas story in 50 words or less" one in about a month...


I know, I can do different themes every few days or so?

Would people be up for that? :)

You could change the thread title to:

Write a story in 50 words or less: (Horror)

then when you think of the new theme change the bracketed word and then we can come back here to write them :). Just an idea to save your searching other pages for your threads or creating one for each theme.

I might create just one more thread and call it "Write a Story in 50 Words! Weekly Theme: (<INSERT THEME HERE>)"

Then just change it, that way it might attract more people to take part :P

I would suggest using this thread, there is no point creating a new one.

The princess had been trapped in the tower for years. Now, finally, she was free. She looked at the beast,
The beast spoke, his voice fading fast.
"You were my new dream."
"And you were mine."
His name was Eugene Fitzherbert. He was a sexy beast and he was dying.
