Okay, enough shilling, time to get to the drabble!



Not Jelly
Jake Bible

The cup of coffee had long since gone cold by the time Malcolm was able to tear his eyes away from it and look at the gun that lay upon the kitchen table.

He studied the curves, the blued steel, the way the thing looked heavy even though it was only his .22 target pistol.

His eyes went from the gun to the strawberry jelly that covered the table around it. The dark red and hunks of fruit.

“Not jelly,” he whispered to himself.

He picked up his phone and dialed 911, ready to report what his wife had done.

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Folks, it is that time of the week again! RITUAL HUMAN SACRIFICE TIME!

What? That’s Wednesdays? And we aren’t supposed to talk about it? Not to anyone? Ever?

Well, that’s a bummer. What’s the point of sacrificing one’s enemies if you can’t brag about it on one’s blog and/or social media? Sometimes I question the morals of this country.

Hey! Speaking of morals! Did you know Z-Burbia is only $.99 right now? AND, if you buy it you can add on the audiobook for only $1.99 more? Hot damn!


Now, on to tonight’s drabble! HUZZAH!



The Loop Never Stops
Jake Bible

Trapped. The current data is processed at two gigabytes per second. The loop never stops.

Cassie stared at the words on her screen. She glanced over her left shoulder. No one was watching her. She glanced over her right shoulder. Herb was watching, but that perv was always watching.

Trapped. Enter protocol for return. The current data is processed at three gigabytes per second. Exponential growth. Cannot maintain position. The loop never stops.

Cassie was about to reply when Herb cried out then vanished into his monitor. Into it. Then gone.

Cassie decided it was time to go to lunch.

Hello, Friday, my old friend. I’ve got 100 words again.

Now, on to the drabble!



Modern City Life
Jake Bible

The subway rattled down the tracks while Holston stared at his hands. The other passengers had gotten off at the last few stops, leaving the car empty, a decaying mausoleum of modern city life.

Holston coughed. He didn’t cover his mouth, just watched the droplets of spittle hit the deck of the subway car, adding to the years of grime and gunk.

He wiped at his mouth and the back of his hand came away bloody.

It was too late.

Holston set his hand on his jeans and closed his eyes, ready for the end of the world to begin.

Friday Night Drabble Party

Well, hello there! Nice to see you have returned for more 100 word goodness!

Now, before we dive into micro-fiction heaven (BECAUSE IT IS HEAVEN!), how about I mention a couple of important things? You don’t mind, do you?

I didn’t think so.

I really only have two things to mention: the Z-Burbia 6 audiobook and the Mega 3 audiobook are ready and waiting for your mighty, mighty earholes to consume! Bam!

Click the pics below and be transported to an aural experience that is sure to delight and fill you with wonder. IT WILL FILL YOU WITH WONDER!


Now, onto the drabble!



It Was Not Over
Jake Bible

The car screamed around the corner, the driver desperate to escape his pursuer. He whipped the wheel this way, that way, back and forth, dodging the other cars, his foot pressing the accelerator all the way to the floor.

The impact was sudden. The driver screamed. He became wedged against the guardrail. It was not over. Six other cars joined in. Impact after impact made the driver’s head snap back again and again.

“Ow,” Bobby said as he walked down the exit plank. “They need higher headrests in those things.”

“Don’t be a baby,” Allison laughed. “They’re just bumper cars.”

Now, on to the Drabble!



Jake Bible

The wizard stared at the runes, eyes narrowed, sweat dripping from his brow.

“Can you decipher it, old man?” Vorgoron asked.

“Give me time, give me time,” the wizard said, scratching his stubbled chin.

“Should you cast a spell?” Malkorn asked, twirling an arrow between his fingers.

“Hush. I have this, elf,” the wizard replied.

They stood there for a moment then the grand stone door creaked open.

“I thought I heard someone out here,” the troll said. He looked at the weapons. “Huh. Questers. I thought you were the pixies selling cookies. Oh, well, lets get on with this.”
