Tales of Tinsel – Room 101

101 words with a twist thrown in just because…

Let’s do another month of M’s prompts shall we.  101 words allowed only.  I know I said I was done with them.  I lie.

Slowly Damien sneaked downstairs, not daring to breathe.  He’d heard something, and he was convinced it was him!  Christmas lights twinkled as he entered the room, his heart pounding, and there he saw a bearded, round bellied man silhouetted against the moonlight.

He had him!

“Sant…” he began to shout when suddenly he noticed two bodies lying unmoving on the floor.  He knew from the matching reindeer slippers it was mum and dad.

The man stepped grinning from the darkness carrying a large sack and raised a gun with his free hand and pushed it into Damien’s chest.

“Merry Christmas kid…”

  1. Since parents didn’t run, it is most likely that the killer knew the victims, and the blood drop fell on the right angle, so the killer must be right handed and of average height, probably a British fellow, which leaves only one possible person who could’ve done it. Admit it Michael, it was you all along. 😀

  2. Ha … I think that’s the key until after I read it somewhere once I am sure in that it’s about surprising the brain leading it one way and then giving it something completely different


  3. There are a number of people on a list I keep it in the way that I will have no problem killing and given the right circumstances I certainly will do. The day the zombie apocalypse arrives they are on my list and I will finish every single one of them.
