Friday Night Drabble Party!
Well, folks, it’s that time of year. The time where I tell you I’ll be on a bit of a hiatus until the new year comes around. I know, I know, I’m sad too.
That means tonight’s Drabble is the last of 2015. It’s a fun one. I hope you feel the cheer.
Click that puppy and give the gift of Jake!
Now, on to the micro-fiction!
Death And Holidays
Detective Halstead covered her nose with the crook of her left arm while she kept her service revolver pointed forward with her right. The smell was overwhelming. Death and holidays.
“Like a rotting pine forest,” her partner, Detective Mackinaw, whispered.
They moved from the foyer to the front room and stopped in their tracks.
The tree. The Christmas tree. It was…eating them.
“Dear God…” Mackinaw whimpered as they watched the Fraser fir dig into the corpses of the poor family.
Halstead holstered her revolver, pulled out her smokes and Zippo, and gave Mackinaw a grin.
“Let’s light it up.”
