Hello everyone! I’ve been kicking around an idea to swtich the Story A Day Challenge to a theme per week to help keep things a little more organized and fresh. Have no fear, I’ll probably switch things around again in March to keep things hopping. Hope you all enjoy this week’s horror/suspense theme. 🙂
John’s back pressed against the wall while holding a baseball bat close to his chest. He pressed his eyes closed and muttered a quick prayer.
This wasn’t supposed to happen to him. Things like this happened to others, to those left careful. He never wanted to hurt anyone.
The click of a gun being cocked caught his attention.
Why did this have to happen to me? Why, oh please, God, why?
His grip tightened on the bat’s handle. If this was it, he’d go down with a fight. He shouldn’t have tried to rob a gangster’s house with a bat.
