Horror Bites Challenge #3

hblogodarkerlinesSo we had a couple of interesting tales from the library picture for HorrorBites #2 and I hope that this week more of you will be inspired to write a short horror tales.

Rules this week:

1. Post your link or full tale into the comments below.

4. Closes around the 13th December
