I’ve noticed someone following me. Today I decided to confront him in hope to get some answers. I turned around and started walking towards him, but he didn’t make any attempt to run.

“Who are you…..???” I asked. “I mean… How can I help you?”

“You don’t know me?” he asked.

“No sorry,” I shrugged.

“Ha, figures,” he laughed meanly. “I knew she wouldn’t tell you.”

“What?” I said, my face full of confusion. “Well anyway, who are you?”

“I’m your father,” he said, holding up a rag and shoving it into my face. “And it’s my turn to have you.”

The world went black.


This week’s 100 Word Challenge is to use this bit of dialogue……..??? asked ‘How can I help you?’…  .  Check out more entries here.

  1. Crikey Veronica, what a cracking entry to 100WC. You did an amazing job of creating an atmosphere of menace and confusion, and use dialogue very well. You could rewrite “in hope to get” as “in the hope of getting” or “hoping to get”.
