While walking home, Anne heard the disturbing din from the garbage bin.
At the back of her apartment building were oversize rats gnawing at something.
Tampons lay there like small gutted animals. Week-old blood and cottony innards spilled across the pavement, filling greedy snouts and thick hairy tongues.
Disgusted, Anne tried to shoo the freak rodents away.
The vampiric vermin hissed at her, their eyes crimson coals of hatred burning through the darkness.
She ran up to her apartment and bolted the door.
Her fingers failed to reach the switch as the glowing red eyes came rushing towards her thighs.
creepy creepy creepy!
Love the whole new look KZ
thanks Alison 🙂 i wanted a fresh new layout, glad you liked it
That doesn’t sound pleasant! Good one!
definitely not pleasant for her. 🙂 thanks Joe
Wow. Those were certainly graphic descriptions. I’m cringing. You do this so well.
I sense a new tampon commercial in the making. Use ours and the rats won’t know it’s that time. Cue music.
Definitely outside of the box.
She’s a much tastier morsel! Very graphic 🙂
Ouch.. I would hate to have vampyric rodents in my house.. and I guess they can come uninvited.. and once they have the taste of blood they will follow through..
eew, i wouldn’t wish it on anyone. hopefully, it was just a bad dream she would eventually wake up from.
KZ I laughed and laughed…so very vintage you! Great writing, as always.
glad it made you laugh 🙂 thanks Pirate
You know? There’s something so very icky about used tampons, rats and garbage bins. May they stay where they belong.
I hate rats and this made me cringe! A good nightmare for the daytime, KZ! Vampire rats. A whole new species.
Where do you come up with these ideas anyway?
i believe the real question is… what on earth is that thing on a stick? lol
I don’t know. I picked it up, looked it over and said, “Gee that’s an oddity. I’ll send it to Rochelle!”
Oy! Reminds me of a story I heard on NPR about a dog who grab a used feminine product from the garbage during a dinner party. Except those glowing eyes and the attacking rats are most certainly from the mind of our FF resident horror expert. Keep creeping us out, K.Z. You do it well.
Yikes! Run from the tampon-infested vermin with hate in their eyes. Shudder. Nicely written, KZ .
When I saw this photo, I knew you would take it somewhere truly creepy, KZ. I’m not disappointed! Creeeeepy!
Well, not much has come rushing at my thighs lately, but I could still feel the terror. Kz always delivers the chills!
EEEKKK … you do love to scare. The thought of rats is real creepy.
It’s a great write though. 😖
Is this one of your nightmares, cause it reads like one!
This is exquisitely scary, K. Z
It really isn’t easy to ‘like’ your posts. Wonderful descriptions – Anne’s disgust is fully understandable. Pity she didn’t get her door closed sooner.
Dear KZ, Great story, and very well written! KZ, you are so good at writing creepy stuff. I was yelling “Run, Anne, Run!” This just gives me the creeps! Gosh, you are so good at this and you look so sweet – I’m sure you are, but you can REALLY WRITE! GOOD! Nan 🙂
