the scream

Then it began to move. It has to be an animal but not just any animal a nocturnal animal because why would anyone be awake in my house at this time of night. It had a pungent smell to it that made my nose burn like blue fire. I decided I would suss it out. Now with a peg on my nose with a vacuum cleaner in my hands walking down the stairs with crazy bed hair. I found myself at the bottom of the stairs turned looking at a mirror screaming at the top of my lungs. What exactly made me scream?

Hi Eliza
From the very start your 100 word challenge you had me completely engrossed. The way you used the prompt “then it began” in your opening sentence was really clever and drew me in immediately. Your description of the ‘pungent smell’ added to the picture in my mind which your words created. I loved “crazy bed hair” and what a cliffhanger! I’d love to know what made you scream. Well done. Great writing for the 10 word challenge.
