The Toy Gun Factory- Flash Fiction Story

My Christmas horror flash fiction, THE TOY GUN FACTORY, has been chosen as the seventh day of Christmas story in the Horror Scribe’s December contest. Twelve days before Christmas, a stygian tree mysteriously and anonymously is driven through the Shaker Hills Mall parking lot setting off a myriad of sinister phenomena including the reviving of the dilapidated toy gun factory at the edge of town. While there is no demand for what the shuttered factory is producing, they pay. On Christmas, in someway, we all pay.

Thanks to Horror Scribes for running this contest. Everyone please check out their site and the other eleven stories in the contest (one a day wrapping up Jan 5th). Also, they run periodic 300 word story contests, so my fellow writers take note!
