Genre:  Horror

Word count:  100

Every day, one student in Grade 6 was chosen to help the school concierge prepare the lunch tables.  It was a great system, perfect for such a small school.   A wall of tables in the gym were rolled up Murphy-Bed-style, saving loads of space.

Each child looked forward to being chosen because he/she got to cut class early!  First day of school Bobby’s turn. He was itching for Mr. Campbell to come and fetch him.

Bobby pulled and tugged down the first one and let out a blood-curdling scream. There, squished against the wall was Suzie, missing since last June.

  1. I like these 100 worders, Dale… it’s fun trying to get a whole story into the limited space available. And the twist! You certainly sent this tale off into a different direction!

  2. Oh yuk – this was one of those stories I knew wouldn’t end well but I couldn’t stop reading! Sort of like driving by that accident and you know you shouldn’t look but … Double yuk 😀

  3. I thought this was funny too.
    If you use the word ‘squished’, you have to expect some chortles.
    Bobby deserves it, he is a nose-picker.
    And don’t even start me on that Suzie.

  4. This was NOT funny at all.
    It was scary.
    AnElephant is looking for a place to hide.
    He thinks about under the table but …
    Poor Bobby and poor poor Suzie.
    Okay, she was a whinging wee clype, but still.

  5. Hey, I was just starting to smile at the sweetness of your story! I’m guessing after his discovery lunch duty will become even more popular (kids being kids and all) 🙂
    Great story!

  6. I admit, I had a great laugh here, reading the story (squeaking at the twist) and chortling along reading the comments. I’m a bad person, laughing about the gruesome death of that innocent child, I know. But I love this. 😀

  7. So that’s where I left my Suzie Q! I told yard duty that someone must have stole my cupcake. Obviously, it slipped off the table and back into the wall space. Its okay, you can use it for Friday Fictioneers, but can I have it back for my lunch?

  8. Some kids will go to any length to avoid eating school lunches. Susie sounds a bit anorexic. Thankfully, Friday is now pizza day. It used to always be reserved for fish when I was a kid.

  9. “lol” Didn’t see it coming & I laughed. All good horror makes me laugh. When Linda Blair’s head spun around in the Exorcist, I thought I would die laughing!
    Well done!
