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!
Time Travel Failure
Four minutes in, and I knew I had made a colossal mistake. What was I thinking, deciding to kill this child with such… crude tactics? Even knowing what he’d grow up to be, I hesitated, frozen with a glinting knife trembling at his neck, unable to complete the deed. The door to the room slammed open, a dozen rough hands grabbed me and wrenched the knife from my grip. Hitler would live because of me, I thought, as the blade sliced across my own throat.
