Friday Night Drabble Party!
Another Friday means another Drabble Party!
And, as promised, all the October drabbles will be Halloween themed!
Speaking of Halloween, I know you’ll be busy on the 31st, but for those of you that don’t have plans on the 30th, you should come to Malaprop’s Bookstore here in Asheville, NC and see me read and sign Little Dead Man! There’ll be candy! And raffles for a chance to win the Ultimate Halloween Basket and a chance at Jake Bible novels for life! Gonna be a blast!
Would love to see ya there!
Now, on to the drabble!
More Than Apples
The apples floated in the tub, their skins striated with streaks of red and pink and yellow.
The apples bobbed up and down, up and down, as the tub was jostled this way and that.
The apples slammed to the bottom of the tub as the head was dunked.
The apples rolled about the head and came back up, ready to bob, bob, bob some more.
The apples were lost in the tub once the blood began to pour, lost in a small pool of deep crimson.
The apples were no longer all that floated and bobbed in the tub.
Disclaimer: Bobbing for apples is gross, people. Just gross. Don’t do it.
