Monster

by on October 25, 2013

Sheri was looking over tomatoes in the produce aisle when she felt the ghostly chill. A white corpse shape loomed before her, chanting ominously. Fortunately, she had her Taser. Boom went the draugur. 

This story was written for Trifecta’s weekend prompt, which was to write about beasts in unusual places. A produce aisle certainly counts as an unusual place to have a frightening encounter. Also, “draugur” is apparently a Norse undead creature that was the basis for the barrow-wights in The Lord of the Rings. Who knew?

  1. *hahaha* What a great concept. I think today’s monsters would be a little out of their depth, trying to navigate the grocery store – let alone dodging modern protective devices. 🙂

  2. Any way to get the creature to move to the cookie aisle? Some help resisting Oreos would be much appreciated… 🙂

  7. I love stories of undead creatures! This is really good.

  8. I bet it’s from the nitrogen they use to artificially ripen the tomatoes. 🙂 Thanks for linking up. I’m learning a lot this weekend!
