#MayBookPrompts Challenge: Day 5

May Book Prompts

Challenge: Something Wicked This Way Comes

This book is a 1962ย dark fantasy by Ray Bradbury. I have not read this one either given that it is not my cup of tea. I came up with two shorts for this prompt. I don’t think I am writing as well as I should be for this challenge given that I am constantly tired lately, but I want to complete it and the most important thing is that I am writing.

The first one was inspired byย Om Shanti Om.ย I was watching ย this film when the thought for this prompt hit me: love is not always kind. It can be cruel and wicked.

He clutched his heart as she walks by with a walk he can only describe as a deadly swagger. His heart has never felt so restricted before. Many have warned him not to cast his eyes upon her, but it was already too late for something wicked this way comes.

Mr. Dark is a featured character in the novel. I thought it’d be awesome to use him as a source of inspiration for this one:


Itโ€™s not a walk in the park,

But he lives in the dark

And he always hits his mark.

He calls the darkness home,

because the light, being so innocent & pure, is no good.

He is hell bent on evil

As he lures unsuspecting victims to his hideaway

Stealing their last breath as he snuff out their life

For the very last time.

I took inspiration from a vampire ๐Ÿ˜›
