The Pursuit of Love and Labor
Horror, 2,145 words -
I adapted the monstrous concepts in the story from a novel I wrote 3/4 of before abandoning several years ago. I wrote, pared down, and edited this in about 4 hours, so it was a bit of a quick deal, but I hope that some of the underlying themes will jump out at people.
Any feedback at all is helpful, though as with most of my horror stuff, my main question is always: was this just a gruesome tale, or did you carry something else away with you?
Thanks for reading!
