If you’re anything like me, you love some flash fiction when it comes to your horror. There is nothing quite like a scare on the go! But one of the things that has gained popularity over the last few years, especially on sites like Reddit.com, is the two-sentence horror story.
It is exactly what you imagine. the author has to find a way to frighten the reader with only two sentences – most of the time consisting of a set up sentence and a twist. I have searched the internet and found a few of my favorites for all of you to enjoy!
So if you have a minute – like, literally just a minute – go ahead and give ’em a read!
