On her way to grandmother’s house, a young girl decides to stop and write in her diary. She has a big decision to make, but only seconds to make it. Of course, this story is entitled Decisions.
In Rabid, we find the welcoming sign off the highway says it all. “Welcome to the city of lost parents – we will take care!”
A girl runs away to the circus, but finds herself trapped at a carnival in the story, Midnight Feathers.
I’ll be the first to admit this week's bite size stories feel extremely odd and disturbing the way they are layered and put with this specific music. I kept getting chills on my arms when recording. Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy.
Decisions won first place in a horror story contest and published in a magazine called Tainted Tea. Rabid was published in Flashes in the Dark. You can find both of these stories in my book Bunnyman, 3 Tales to Chill Your Bones which you can find on amazon.
Welcome to the Dark Softly Summer Bites series. These stories are bite sizes, shorter than usual—about 5-10 minutes long. I hope you dig the Summer Bites opening/closing! The regular program will resume in September.
