F3, Week 43: Daddy’s Home


Prompt by Joyce Juzwik

This Sunday is Father’s Day, and it is defined as ‘a day on which fathers are particularly honored by their children, especially with gifts and greeting cards’. Unfortunately, that was never possible for you because when you were growing up, your father was rarely home. He was always on the road with his job, and in his profession, holidays were an especially busy time.

Your dad’s finally retired, and you want to make this Father’s Day the most special day he’s ever had. You’ve got the whole day planned, and it will be just the two of you. He is going to be so surprised, and you can hardly wait.

Prompt: Tell us all about how you spend Father’s Day

Genre: Horror

Word Count: 1,500 or less

Deadline: Thursday, June 23, 2016

Post your story on your blog or website and provide a link to it in the comment section of this prompt.
