Melloween: Night of the Tweeting Dead Winners

Between Twitter and the board, we had people writing 140 character long horror micro-fiction. From twenty-five of those, people voted on their top five. Thanks to a tie, that turned into the top six. And these favorites of one line horror are:

Mommy, I put that pill in Daddy’s drink like you said to. Funny, he’s really asleep. Mommy, what’s that big knife you’re holding? MOMMY?

You see, I did beat him to death. They never found the weapon. What was it? The frozen joint I fed to the investigating officers.

A thousand tiny legs pierced the soft flesh of my throat as the thing made it's way down.Soon it'll be in me. Soon, "me" will be gone

I’m so glad my lonely daughter finally found a new friend to sleep over last night. I don’t know why they haven’t got out of bed yet, though.

"When I change,I can't promise I won't hurt you." she rests her revolver on his knee "That's ok,I can't promise you won't die trying"

We always joked about our zombie plans.Where we'd go.Who we'd save.I never considered doing it alone.I never thought I'd lose you 1st

Thanks to everyone who wrote one (or more)! You were all absolutely fantastic. Additional entries can be read in the comments.

Skritch. Skritch. Skritch. It's just the wind, making branches scrape the glass. But then I remember...I don't have a tree.

Someone returned carrying a sleepy tabby cat, saying it was the source of the screaming, but I knew better, I think that we all did.

We ate the meat in silence. Food was scarce & we were lucky Sam found any at all. It was just such a shame that Kyle never came back.

I always walk carefully through graveyards, ever since my sister stepped on a grave and lost her shoe to a boney hand.

Sam should be Stan or better yet Eric. Just saying.

Mine is based on a true story.

With the Twitter tag, it would have been too long, so I had to go with Sam.

AG, that sounds intensely creepy.

The previous homeowner always came back when children moved in. It freaked them out a little since she'd died before they were born.
