Prompt: Write a horror story in 5 sentences or less. (Word Limit: 75 words)

I woke up at 2:30 am last night. A woman was thumping my window, crying for help. I opened the window and saw my husband with her. She took a knife and stabbed my husband three times. I woke up flabbergasted, my husband cuddled me like every other day. Thank God it was a dream. I ran towards the window, opened it and saw the blood on the notch.

Honorable Mention:

The telephone rings in the middle of the night, and I wake up pondering, should I pick up? Every  footstep I take echoes the screams of dead movie characters pulling me back towards my bed. The  rings purge the silence as I make the most novice mistake. I reach out and pick up the receiver. A  distorted voice snickers, "This bed feels despairingly lonely without you. I'm disappointed you picked  up the phone, aren't you?"

Some words remain a question forever.
