Five Sentence Freakout!
The point of this challenge is to write a strictly five sentence horror/thriller story with your first sentence being: “Four minutes in and I knew I had made a colossal mistake.” Notice: The sentence prompt count as your FIRST sentence, meaning you will write 4 more to complete the five-sentence-freakout. (Blatant run-on sentences will be a negative grade when judging these). Have fun and Happy Halloween!
Four minutes in and I knew I had made a colossal mistake. The air started to thin, and the blackness of this cramped cave seemed to darken. I slowly tried to inch my way out of the slender pathway I initially attempted to squeeze into. My confidence and understanding dwindled as my movements confined me to an even tighter position where I could no longer move my legs or arms. Dead silence surrounded me as my body started to numb from the pressure of the constricting stone walls, and all I could feel were the wet tears coagulating in the rock beneath my cheeks.
