Do you have a two-sentence horror story?
When it comes to literature, we all have our favorite genres. Some like romance, some like thrillers, and others like comedy. But the horror genre is something that intrigues everyone in general. You might be a believer in the supernatural but the existence of the paranormal has not been proved scientifically yet. Hence, it takes certain acumen to pen down something fictional and make it so spooky that it will run a chill down your spine, despite it not being real.
In certain cases, it has been said less is more. This certainly stands true in terms of two-sentence horror stories. Back in the day, author Ernest Hemingway wrote a two-sentence horror story that reads, "For sale, Baby shoes, Never worn." It is said that he penned this during lunch along with some other writers just to prove that the effect of fear and dread can be delivered just by six words.
While we have no way of verifying if these horror stories are true or not, but this has definitely interested us in the idea of two-sentence horror stories. Recently, we came across a subreddit named r/TwoSentenceHorror and it's the perfect place for horror fans. It stays true to its name and delivers spine-chilling horror stories just in two sentences. While going through the subreddit, it felt like a lot of people have dark thoughts which they penned down or perhaps, Stephen King must have made multiple accounts to write these down. Check out these stories and go through them at night for extra chills.
