The Licked Hand

5,269 views

A beautiful young girl is left home alone with only her dog to protect her. On the news that night, they announced there is a serial killer on the loose in the area. Before she goes to bed, she locks all the doors and tries to lock all the windows, but the one in the basement won’t lock. She decides to leave it unlocked, but locks the basement door and goes to bed. Her dog takes its customary place under her bed.

In the deep of night she awakens to a dripping sound coming from her bathroom. Half-awake, the girl feels the comforting lick from her dog and falls back to sleep. She reawakens to the dripping sound, reaches her hand down to the dog where she feels the reassuring lick and falls back to sleep. Once more, she awakens to the dripping sound. She reaches her hand down and feels the lick of her dog.

Now curious about the dripping sound, she gets up and slowly walks towards the bathroom, the dripping sound getting louder as she approaches. She reaches the bathroom and turns on the light. She is greeted by a horrific sight; hanging from the shower nozzle is her dog with its throat slit open and its blood dripping into the bathtub.

Something on the bathroom mirror catches her eye; she turns around. Written on the wall in her dog’s blood are the words “Humans can lick too.”

    Instant classic for me. Reminds me of those campfire ghost stories that my friends told me when I was a kid that would keep me up at night.

    I’ve heard this before, me and my friends used to pass this story around when we were younger. Safe to say we all shat ourselves. Fabulous. What a classic.

    Good, but I could guess the ending from the first lick. 2/5

    It was obvious from the title but still a creepy delight. Nice writing.

    I really liked this, another instant favorite, like ‘The Crawling’. Sometimes, our subconsciousness shrouds us like a stone wall. We don’t look over the wall, because our mentality forbids us to. We know the item, this time it’s the dog, is under our bed, but there’s always that little nudge that says, “No, go look.”
    In most creepypasta stories this little nudge is what gives us such horrible fates.
    9.5/10

    Would have been better without the “humans can lick too” just leave it with her finding dog
