I'm back with another short story. I had some time to kill before work yesterday. So I decided to take my prompt journal over to Starbucks and try to do some writing, I ended up taking 4 prompts and writing 3 short stories. The short story that I ended up loving most is called What's Behind Your Door? I combined 2 separate prompts for this one The Prompts were; Write a short story that involves a long hallway & A short story with a cliff hanger. So with out further blah blah blah. Here is my latest short story,
Morgan wasn't sure why he agreed to this. He wasn't the party type. But like always his best friend Connor had gotten him into another situations. But where Morgan called them situations Connor liked to refer to them as his "Epic Ideas". This latest "Epic Idea" was full proof. And would finally get their feet in the door of the popular kids. The question now was; Which door was it? Morgan was currently standing in the biggest most lavish house he had ever been in. Looking down the longest hallway he had ever seen in his life. Ashton was throwing another one of his parties to end all parties. When the boys got there he had pointed to a long spiral stair case and said "Party's upstairs. And down the hall" With a smirk on his face, That sent a chill up Morgan's spine. Like most of Ashton's parties this one had a theme. Tonight's theme; "What's behind my door?" When Connor had asked what that ment all Ashton would tell him was "You got to come to the party to find out dude." When he told Morgan about it he had just assumed that Ashton was high. Which really wouldn't be too far from the truth, He claimed to get his best ideas that way.
"Chose a door." Ashton said from behind them. He put a hand on Morgan's right shoulder and the other on Connor's left. "But remember... What ever door you choose is where your staying for the rest of the night, So choose wisely." He then pushed his way between them and walked down the hall. Disappearing behind the 7th door on the left. "This is seriously the weirdest thing you have ever gotten us into." Morgan said. "Yea but it will be fun!" Connor replied. With the same mysterious look on his face that had gotten then into so many bad situations before."Don't think of the night as a situation. Think of it as a night of mystery."
They started to walk down the hall. Connor stopped at the 4th door to the right, "Lets split up," He said. "We can cover more ground that way." "Cover more ground? Were not looking for a lost puppy Con. It's a party. A party that we cant leave one room tell 3 am I may add. If you go in there I wont be seeing you tell the end." Connor smiled that same smile again. Morgan was starting to hate that stupid smile. "That will add to the mystery!" Morgan shook his head and sighed. He walked over to the 5th door. "Fine." He said. "But if I get killed in here I'm coming back and haunting your skinny ass. And I will make your life a living hell. You hear me?" He joked. Connor laughed "That's my boy!" He said. They reached for the handles of their doors. "See you at 3!" Connor said. Morgan took one last look at his way too eager best friend. "Yeah... 3" He said. He turned the handle and pushed open the door...
