So before it gets too late,I decided to post my 100 words(excluding the title)
What’s in the belfry?
Weird rumours had been floating in the neighbourhood.
Mr. Coots swore he had seen ghosts.
Stella insisted her cat was possessed and even little Tamara piped in about some strange smell.
When Mr.Stanley found a few drops of blood on the church floor this morning, Mrs. Gregory went crazy, ranting about vampire Bats roosting in the belfry!!
So Paul, the caretaker had to climb up to check,
A dark shape shifted in the belfry as Paul stretched his hand…
The bell started clanging.
People ran in and stopped, horrified to see Paul’s bloodless body hanging from the swinging bell.
