A scream rang out. As I traced the auditory source of evident horror, I was led to my daughters room. I looked around quickly as I caught my breath from the reacting sprint, but nothing seemed out of place other than that tearing of a child under the bed. As I glimpsed at what might have caused any of this I noticed her new doll, limbs contorted, across the room.

Going over to the bed to console her, “Honey what’s wrong?”

Still sniffling, she managed to utter while shaking her finger towards the direction of the doll, “Its gonna hurt me!

I bent over to the doll causing her to turtle more under the bed and gave the doll a funny glimpse. It seemed to have a tidy set up, but the face gave an emotionless disheveled appearance. I walked over to the bed and got on all fours to reach my daughters face and held the doll next to me and gave it a shake

“See? Nothing’s wrong. It won’t hurt you honey. She just wants to play” I said with a grin, pulling my daughter out handing her back the doll in her shaking hands.

“Now be careful honey, and as for your friend, you wouldn’t hurt my precious girl, right?” I said jokingly and gave the dolls hair a rub.

“Right!” was the reply. My daughters lips never moved.

It was rather simple. You could’ve tried to make it more twisted.

The overused idea didn’t work since tiny stories depend on twist or shock value. It would’ve been fine if it had been used in a longer story where the writer can show his originality in adding to the plot and other details. That’s just what I think, though.

Okay, the doll thing has been used so many times that it shouldn’t even be considered that creepy anymore and so in my opinion this story was plain stupid. Who would sit and read this one if they know there are creepier ones out there. Like really if it was longer it might have been creepier…

I really didnt see that coming but…. i loved it but it could use a bit of lenght and more of a backstory like where they got it how long they had it if it was developing………. other-wise i LOVE it 9/10 4.5/5

“of place other than that tearing of a child under the bed”

Who writes like this? You are not writing to impress. The style is horribly repulsive if anything.

I like this story but I feel it would have benefited from additional plot and character development. Additionally, I feel that the “scary doll” trope is really overused at this point and the narrative could have been improved by adding additional new and creative elements.
