Very Short Stories: "Contact"


A black and white image of a lady's hand on top of planchette, being guided across a ouija board.
Making Contact...

"Is anyone there?"

The planchette quivered beneath his fingers and began to move;

"YES"

He had finally made contact.

"What do I do now?" He spoke aloud to quell his growing fear. The planchette moved again and slowly began spelling out another word...

"D-I-E"

#vss365, or "Very Short Stories" began life on Twitter as an opportunity for writers to share a short story within the Twitter character limit based on a daily word prompt. The challenge is that the prompt must be included in the story itself! Anyone is welcome to join in - just search on Twitter for the hashtag, click on "latest" and you'll see the day's tweets featuring the daily prompt.
