Five Word Challenge: Week 1 – A second horror story

So I had a second idea for a story for the week 1 of the Five Word Challenge. I wrote this story in about half a day because as I got halfway through the first story I thought this idea might be better and wrote this one instead. The problem was that I hadn’t really thought this story all the way though and had to rush it a bit leading to a weak ending. But still enjoy.

For the other story go here.

The five words to include are;

  • Phone
  • Horror
  • Travel
  • Ship
  • Office
