#100WordHorror ★ L. A. Cunningham


You locked the doors and windows… But I was already inside.
As the clock struck twelve and the final bell tolled and faded into the night, an expectant hush fell over the house. The witching hour had arrived.

A slow creek of an ancient key broke the silence as the door on the grandfather clock opened a crack. 

Four long gnarled fingers wrapped around the polished oak as I pushed my way into the room and slithered into the shadows.

I could hear your daughter’s tiny little heart beating upstairs as she slept.

Another house. 

Another night. 

Another missing child.★


L. A. Cunningham mainly writes urban and dark fantasy, but likes to dabble in horror and poetry. She is a lover all things ominous and telling the kind of stories that make your palms sweat and your heart race.
