There’s something utterly creepy about reading flash fiction horror entries past midnight. Especially the entries that say
First of all, I’d like to give special mention to “Jerry” who submitted a horror entry that made me LOL:
ano ang nasa dako pa roon?…
Sorry though, it didn’t win but you sure made me laugh! Also, props to Noypi with this entry that I found to be rather funny: “For sale: si Ate, mainit pa.” I also want to give a special shout out to John who made a special tool to count characters for judging entries! Thanks sir!
OK here goes! Thanks to everyone who participated. Looking through all the entries, I narrowed the whole thing to two. One from TheGreatMorinda which goes:
Time in: 9:59 am. Time of death: 9:13am.
and the other from Messie:
The river is steadily rising. There was no rain… only people jumping.
Both entries made me stop and think a bit trying to picture the scenarios in my head (one of the tricks to doing horror is the Clive Barker / H.P. Lovecraft formula where you leave most of it to the imagination). Between the two, I found Messie’s entry to be the more disturbing, hence I gladly award the Nokia X3 to MESSIE! We will send an email with instructions on how to claim your phone from the Nokia PH office.
There are still 2 more mini-contests coming up! I’ll put them up in a separate post so it will be easier to segregate.
