"Jump Scare"

Lorna was touching up her makeup before work when the Abomiglob shot a slimy proboscis from her toilet bowl.

She hurled a toothbrush at it. "Stop it! I said that jump scares aren't scary."

A face formed on the extrusion's surface. "I've used them for a millennium."

"Boooooring. I saw The Exorcist when I was four."

"How can I frighten this age?" It groused. "You're so inured. Everyone knows your leaders are petty, your currency crumbling, your geopolitical enemies manifold."

Lorna shuddered. "That was good."



"Everyone also knows that skirt is so last season," the Abomiglob added helpfully.
