Friday Night Drabble Party!

Who is ready to Party? YOU ARE!

No, seriously, you are. Ahhh, come on. Party. There’s a free Drabble in it for ya.

There ya go!

Friday Night Drabble Party is ready to rock this planet across the Milky Way! Or something like that.

But, before we get to that interstellar rocking, how about I make a couple of announcements?

Z-Burbia 3: Estate of the Dead is now available as an audiobook on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes! Go get some of that audio goodness!

The other announcement is that Little Dead Man is available for pre-order! That’s right, you can order the trade paperback right now, lock in that early bird savings, and then it will be delivered to your door on July 15th! Or something like that. Click the link or here and you can choose your retailer! THE FUTURE IS NOW!


Now to the drabble!



Corner Market
Jake Bible

Corner market. Sitting there like a hollow tumor, sick and dying.

The last remnants of the city, left alone to rot and sag.

The tinkle of glass and a small cry. Silence follows. Desperate silence. Pleading, begging silence.


A shuffle of footsteps, an angry whisper, the hint of a face. Watching, waiting, praying.

A howl.

A whimper.

No hint of a face. More shuffling footsteps. A door opens, a door closes.

A howl.

Feet slapping on ancient, cracked pavement.

A howl.

Feet stopping, body quivering, mouth salivating.

Corner market. Sitting there like a lunchbox, waiting to be opened.
