Spooktober 2022, Day Eleven

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.


TITLE:  It’s the Orb for You, Ladies!

PREMISE:  Zinnia and Bernadette were in legal trouble for anarcho-socialist activity at the university, and began to glimpse men in suits spying on them.  To escape the heat, they accept a serendipitous invite to a lady retreat at the luxurious Marbled Heron Lodge in rural Ontario.  Little did they suspect, a cult had seen their activism and assumed it meant they were down with destroying civilization – targets for recruitment.

HORROR ELEMENT:  Stuck in a cabin for a week with cultists seeking your heart by carrot and stick.  Watch what you say or you’ll get the orb too.
