The shaking came suddenly. I had never seen him before but something about him made every hair on the back of my neck stand at attention. His pores oozed malevolent intentions. I had never feared being on my own in the past but, with one look into his eyes, all of that changed.
I got into my car and locked the doors. The engine came to life on the first try and I maneuvered around the corners in the parking garage as quickly as my limited driving skills would allow. His face burns my memory. His stare haunts my dreams.

Creepy and the picture made it even creepier still.
Thank you…..I creeped myself out too.
I FELT this….brilliant
Thanks!! It’s nice to move away from the solemn things I’ve been writing lately and get back into the creepy side of my brain.
I don’t know who he was either, but I was creeped out by him. That’s the sign of a good story, when you can get others to feel what you’re describing. 🙂
God bless you,
Wow! And I thought I was creeped out by Jehovah’s Witnesses!
Excellent setting for a very well told tale.
Haha….thank you very much.
Eek! Way to scare me in 100 words that didn’t include a weapon pointed at me and an order to hand it all over.
definitely not someone you want to meet in a dark parking garage!
No, you sure don’t!!
Yowza! What a fantastic, horrible image.
Chills! This made me look over my shoulder, and I’m just sitting in my living room. Wonderful imagery.
Thank you very much.
