Spooktober is a 31 day event of coming up with original horror ideas based on prompts my writing group argues over. These are my entries.
(EDITED: I wasn’t clear what the prompt was or how this met that criteria before.)
SPOOKTOBER DAY #1 — Competition
TITLE: Stay Safe
PREMISE: Markiplier was warned. 100 days, 100 nights of danger on the wicked streets of Los Angeles – two gangs were having a challenge to see who could kill the most people. But the gangs were not going on the rumored rampage, and he felt safe. Police cruisers patrolled orderly streets. He didn’t realize the gangs about to initiate the killing spree were rolling those very same cruisers – hiding behind shiny badges, with murder in their blue hearts.
HORROR ELEMENT: Markimoo is hunted by gangs within the LAPD, and only street gangs can ultimately save him. A story ripped from the headlines, babey.
