I’m Running Out Of Clever Trifecta Titles

Posted: July 18, 2013 in Trifecta posts, writing

That’s right. It’s finally happened. I can’t think of a single clever title for this Trifecta post. I’m amazed I lasted this long. Anyway this week’s Trifecta prompt was the word crack. More specifically this definition of it:

And here is where I went with it:

Smoke sat on the night sky like an oily film. It obscured the full moon. An ugly curtain over the only decent light. There had been screaming earlier but now everything was silent. It wouldn’t last.

Someone had opened the door, just a crack, and Death had slipped through. Now the door was open, there was nothing to do but breathe. In and out. In and out.

Tomorrow the city would pick itself up and wipe the dried and dusty blood from its hands. They would collect the bodies that had once been friends and family. They would clean away the evidence of what they’d done.

But Sara wouldn’t forget. And she wouldn’t forgive either.

    This reminds me a bit of The Masque of The Red Death. I love it.
    I managed a fun title this week, but only after thinking for a while and even then, I borrowed it from Doctor Who…so we might be in the same boat.

  2. I liked – ‘An ugly curtain over the only decent light. ‘ … !
