The Offer You Cannot Refuse

For this week’s Red Writing Hood prompt, we’re inviting you to truly scare us.

Here’s what you’ll need to do:

Compose a post in the form of a text160 characters.

Your text must elicit or express fear.

Your BFF lost someone. We can help her find him if you bring John to 133 E. Elm St, west of DT in next 2 hours. Do not say why or be late or our offer expires.

A little taste from Mav’s (and John’s) future….

Concrit and comments are always welcomed.

  2. Amanda says:

    I would be so torn!

  3. Kir says:

    wow Kel, that was scary, I could almost see her swallow reading it and turn white. It definately made me AFRAID!!!

    great job (as usual) 🙂

  4. Galit Breen says:

    Love the push to the story!

  5. skoteinia says:

    I’d be there, but I’d try and bring back up…

  6. angela says:

    What she SHOULD do is tell him, because John is a serious badass. I can’t wait to see what she DOES do, because I’m sure there will be a twist 🙂

  7. Is John the BFF? If so, it’s a little confusing. If not, it’s super creepy to have to trade one person for another and I like it!

  8. Carrie says:

    damn, what has John gotten Mav messed up in?

  9. Jackie says:

    First of all I am glad to see you back!
    Second…. awesome. I love the little teaser that this is!

  10. I’m very worried for this person. Well done! I want to know more.

  11. John says:

    This makes me want to look back through the previous Mav & John posts . . .

  12. CDG says:

    And the stakes are raised yet again!

  13. Venus says:

    I *love* the coldness of “or our offer expires” – that’s what made it truly scary for me. Great job!

  14. Renee says:

    Oh this is a perfect piece of Mav and John. I love it. It fits so well.

  15. All I can say is I do not want to go there…. but for my BFF I would do just about anything!

  16. julie Moore says:

    ‘or our offer expires” great line and creates a real interest in the rest of the story.
