Word / Genre Challenge #1

Write a horror that includes A Red Bikini Top.

The trail up to the mountain lake was, in places, rough going with rock and boulder obscuring the route completely. Many a hiker had been known to have wandered too far from the trail and as result require rescuing.

“This better be worth it Sam,” panted his long suffering girlfriend breathlessly.

“You’ll love it babe,” he replied, hopping over a large boulder from view. “The water is crystal clear.”

Laura sighed and struggled on in pursuit. Several minutes later she caught up with him staring at a piece of clothing hanging from a tree up ahead.

“What is it?” she asked.

“A red bikini top I think.”

“Great! Someone beat us here.”

“Someone topless!”

Sam received a swift punch this upper right arm, Laura not approving of the excited tone in his voice.

“Come, it’s just over there.”

The two made their way to a viewing spot, the clear tranquil waters of the lake sprawling before them.

“First one in’s a chicken,” shouted Sam as he discarded his clothes, semi running towards the water’s edge.

“Sam, there’s no one else here,” replied Laura, a nervous hesitation in her voice.

“Come on the water’s lovely.”

Throwing caution to the wind, she stripped down to her bra and knickers before joining her boyfriend in the water.

“That’s not fair!” he remarked, splashing her with a handful of water.

“It’s all you’re getting,” she replied returning the soaking.

It was at that moment an eerie mist began to creep across the surface of the water. The sky darkening and rain begining to fall.

“What the hells wrong with this weather. This wasn’t forecast.”

“Sam!” cried Laura. “I cannot move my legs.”

Sam thrashed as much as he could to reach his beloved, only to find he too was stuck fast.

“I’m scared,” she continued to cry, trying desperately in vain to free herself.

In a split second, from thrashing in the water, she disappeared as if being pulled under by something below. Sam screamed in horror her name. There was no reply. Moments later he too disappeared below the surface.

Months after the unexplained disappearance of the two lovers, several young teens stood staring at a tree in the distance.

“What is it?”

“Looks like a bra!”
