He never felt so snug. The jacket was warm and cosy. He hugged his arms around himself, as the jacket tightened around him.

However, when he tried to take it off, it just stuck more to him. His arms felt sweaty, his body choked in the tightening of fabric.

Suddenly the hood of the jacket landed on his head, the cords wrapping around his neck.

He tried to yell, but he was being strangled.

Soon the jacket started sucking him in, swallowing him whole.

What was left? Just bloody stains inside. The jacket laid there... waiting for its next victim.

    Superb :) If someone had asked me to do a horror story about a jacket, I wouldn't know where to start, but the idea of being like ingested into the jacket is brilliant and the description of the hood covering him is so visual.Nice one, Aishling.

    Love the concept Aishling. At first I thought it was going to be a straight jacket, but this one’s so much more exciting!

    Nice. Perfectly done. This concept would be a 1,500 page novel by Stephen King...
