Friday Fictioneers: A Campy Horror Story

This was written for Friday Fictioneers. Friday Fictioneers is a challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields to write a 100-word story inspired by the below photo prompt.

My first thought was Camp L Squad, the fourth installment of my L Squad vignette series. That’s way longer than 100 words, and it’s already been posted. So, I dug deep into my soul and the horrors that dwell there and came up with this.

A Campy Horror Story

“There’s a fire burning for you in my soul.”

“Shut up. You’re so corny.”

“You love it.”

“Maybe a little.”

Liz cuddled up to Carlos, unaware of the tragedy that would soon befall them.

A twig snapped in the darkness. They both jumped.

“What was that?”

“I don’t know,” Carlos replied, attempting to conceal his fear.

He stretched for his flashlight, with Liz still clinging tightly. He searched with the light. It shone on a deer as it pranced by.

The pair exhaled a sigh of relief.


“Yes, please.”

“There’s a hole in the bag. The chocolate’s gone.”

      1. Sorry, I was joking, doesn’t come across very well in comments. There’s a pirate movie (pirates of the Caribbean I think) where one of the characters takes all the rum from the other without them knowing. That’s where my mind went when I read the ending and your earlier comment about a pirate bear.

      2. I assumed you were joking. I just didn’t get it. I usually get jokes. That’s a very layered joke. I respect the depth and the thought process. Unfortunately, you lost me at Pirates Of The Caribbean. I’ve only seen the first one and wasn’t a fan.
