Hump Day Kick Start – Baleful Bathtub Edition

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.

It’s October! You know what that means. Scary writing prompts! And this one is a great one to start with.

Where is this and who wrote the message? Is this an abandoned house or aslyum swallowed up by nature and now a place where kids hang out and party? Is the message a prank? Or had a vicious murder actually happened here and the house could never be sold. Is the message a warning? Or is it a plea to discover the truth behind what really happened to a lost soul? Or a final note highlighting how those closest to them had failed them. Had the person died by suicide? Drowned? Butchered? Succumbed to the filth that even Mr. Clean couldn’t conquer?

What’s your take? Tell me a tale or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from you.

    “You said this was a nice fixer-upper,” screeched Darla as she punched Wilbur on his arm. “This place should be condemned!”
    “I told you we got a terrific price on this property,” he replied meekly.
    “They should pay US to stay here,” she fumed. “This is totally ridiculous. And what’s with this bathroom? It looks like Freddy Kruger and the chainsaw guy from Texas got together and set a trap for the hockey mask guy from the Lake Camp.”
    “It’s not really that bad, Darla,” said Wilbur hopefully.
    “Are you kidding? Look at those hand prints. Not even Mandy stuck around to see what comes out of that filthy tub at night. I’m not spending another five minutes in this pig sty.”
    “But where will you go? what will you do?” he asked.
    “Anywhere but here… and anything but fixing up this dump.”
    Wilbur looked about frantically. “So where will *I* go? and What will *I* do?”
    “Frankly, my dear idiot,” she said calmly, “I don’t give a damn.”
