Gingerbread by Victor Davis

When Edgar challenges his friend Arainy to sneak into the candy factory and steal sweets, she resists, even though she desperately wants to prove herself. She knows the risks. She knows the Candy Man has caught Eddie before, but intrigue gets the better of her. This is not a children's bedtime story. It is a dark retelling of Peter Rabbit.

Note from the author: For years I've been keeping a dream journal. First, I've heard that writing down your dreams encourages them to come more clearly and frequently. Second, I've always hoped that out of all the nonsense, an occasional gem can be found. On January 1st, 2012, I woke up and scribbled a disturbing dream down in my journal. Months later, it formed the basis for this short story.
Review: Wow this short story is a well crafted, chilling read that stays with you long after you've finished it. It's creepy, with touches of fairy tale and sci fi elements that make it a truly unique read. I loved this!
