Sometimes the creepiest stories are those that leave the most up to your imagination. When writing two sentence horror stories you have to make sure that each word packs a punch. I think the best way to write these “micro” stories is to have the first sentence be about something normal which the reader can sympathise with. For example, He sleepily told me to stop tickling his feet.
So with our first sentence we learn that a wife, girlfriend, (or boyfriend) might be tickling their significant other’s feet, likely in bed. Fairly normal and definitely not scary, right? The second sentence should show how or why that seemingly normal situation is actually scary, creepy or horrifying. Now lets look at our second sentence, It wasn’t me.
Okay, so with the second sentence we now know that the narrator is not doing the tickling, so there must be something else under the covers with them. As the reader you can let your imagination run wild with what exactly is doing the tickling.
