  1. Welcome to Trifecta! We’re so glad you found us and took the plunge. This is a really great, super creepy response to the prompt. Waking up blood soaked? That’s either the start to or the end of a great story. Thanks for linking up. Don’t forget to come back and vote at the end of the challenge. There’s a countdown in our right sidebar.

    • Well, you guys really give us a challenge! As for this post, I never thought I can have these comments and it just inspired me to write more and challenge myself more. Thanks a lot for the nice words. =)
