Trifexta Week 10 had a prompt that I just could not resist:
"Write a horror story in 33 words, without the words blood, scream, died, death, knife, gun, or kill. Good luck."
Chalk lines soaked up tiny puddles of crimson where the answers became questions. Mickey knew what happened, but he wasn't sacrificing words, his eyes were glued to the flashing sign across the street.
