The Threat

by Thomas Bowling

Supernatural Flash Fiction Contest Winner 

“I'm coming for you.”

The voice on the phone was terrifying. The threat sounded real, but why would anyone want to hurt me? It didn't make sense. I didn't have any enemies. All my life, I've gone out of my way to treat others with respect. Now, someone was out to get me.

I spent the night in fear. Things always seem worse at night, but in the morning, I felt the same. I don't think I'll ever sleep again. Who could? And who was the person behind this ominous threat?

I tried to remember if I had ever heard the voice before. No. I would have remembered it. It was creepy. It didn't even sound human. It was a deep growl that sent shivers up my spine.

Even now, I tremble thinking about the unholy sound that came from my phone. The scariest part, is my phone hasn't worked for over a year.
