Friday Night Drabble Party!
It’s time for a Party!
I know y’all missed the Drabble last week. Sorry, but things got all kinds of crazy as I was going over the final edits on Z-Burbia 6: Rocky Mountain Die. Stay tuned for the release announcement on that one.
But, since we are on the subject of missed Drabble Parties, I want to make sure y’all know that it is summer time which means there is usually a hiatus for the FNDP. While I won’t officially be pausing the drabbles this summer, just know that there could easily be gaps. Especially during July whilst I am on vacation for two weeks.
Just a little heads up, yo!
Now, how’s about some sweet, sweet, sweet micro-fiction?
He Never Had
He downshifted into second, but took the corner too fast. The tail end of the Mustang whipped out, a horn blared, he didn’t give a shit. He never had.
His foot slammed down on the accelerator as his right hand shifted back up into third. His left foot depressed the clutch then let it out again. Every movement of the dance happened in a breath’s time, simultaneous.
He glanced in the rearview mirror and saw the car behind him made the corner easily, barely a wobble or skid.
They said he couldn’t race Death, but fuck if he didn’t try.
