For Ages
By
Jake Bible

Hand to throat, knee on chest; the man held the creature down as the thing struggled underneath.

“You think you could kill them all and I’d never find you?” the man snarled. “Tracked you for ages.” The man squeezed harder. “Ages. Now you will pay for what–.”

The man’s eyes went wide as the bony tip of the creature’s tail exploded from the middle of the man’s chest.

Hand to throat relaxed, knee to chest fell away; the man collapsed onto his side, dead.

“How’d you think I killed ’em all, bitch?” the creature spat, wiping blood from its tail.

Beg To Differ
By
Jake Bible

The single note, on the verge of changing, morphing, becoming something else, hung in the air, gripping the audience by their very souls. None could move, they were owned.

Red eyes stared at the crowd. A black tongue licked lips. Long fingers held the note.

Someone sneezed. The note faltered then died, the spell broken.

All eyes fell on Todd.

“Uh…allergies,” Todd said, extremely uncomfortable by the attention being paid to him. “Pollen, specifically.”

“THERE IS NO POLLEN IN HELL!” the owner of the guitar roared.

“Beg to differ,” Todd replied and sneezed. “I mean, it is Hell, right?”

Twas A Nice Life
By
Jake Bible

“Oh my, oh my, oh my!” Bumbletubs cried as he ran down the corridor, the Thing right on his heels. “OH MY!”

“Bumbletubs!” the prince shouted from his bedroom. “Keep it down, I am trying to nap!”

“Sorry to disturb, M’Lord!” Bumbletubs screamed as he raced past the prince’s closed bedroom door. “So sorry!”

“Well, you should be, Bumbletubs! You should be!” The prince grumbled inaudibly then snoring reached the corridor after assailing the bedroom door.

Bumbletubs scampered around the corridor’s corner, the Thing still on his heels.

“Twas a nice life,” Bumbletubs thought just as the Thing caught up.

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Oh, you have come back! I thought I’d never see you again!

Hmmm…what’s that? How can I see you now?

Well, I can’t, of course. That’d be silly… Ignore the blinking red light. Nothing to see there.

SO! How about some drabble stuff? 100 words of micro-fiction to distract you from the blinking red light? Not that there is a blinking red light. YOU SEE NOTHING!

Anyhoo…buy Galactic Vice on audiobook. Or buy Agent Prime on Kindle or paperback. Your choice. HELL, WHY CHOOSE? Pick ’em both. You’ll thank me.

Here are some handy pics you can click on. Do it. DOOOOO EEEEEEET!

Oh, and if you want the Friday Night Drabble Party delivered to your inbox at lunch time, instead of at night, then subscribe to my weekly newsletter! DO EEEEEET!

Now, on with the drabble!

Enjoy!

Dreadfully Terrifying Occurrence
By
Jake Bible

“Bumbletubs!”

No response. Not even a “Don’t bother with me, M’Lord! Save yourself!” Rather inconsiderate. Completely unacceptable.

“Well, Bumbletubs,” the prince muttered. “If you are going to hide after such a tragedy has befallen me then I shall think not of you again. You are banished from my mind, Bumbletubs. Banished!”

“M’lord? Who are you speaking to?”

“Bumbletubs!”

“Yes, M’Lord?”

“I thought you’d died when my pudding exploded!”

“Exploded, M’Lord? It appears you only spilled it.”

“Ah, yes… It appears so. Dreadfully terrifying occurrence. Did not like it. Make sure it never happens again.”

“I will do my best, M’Lord.”

Cheers!

Funny Story
By
Jake Bible

“Bumbletubs?”

“Yes, M’Lord?”

“Why is there a grashbal in my court?”

“Oh, yes, funny story, M’Lord. You see–.”

“Is it a long story, Bumbletubs?”

“Not particularly, M’Lord.”

“Not particularly…? By what metric are you judging the length of this explanation?”

“Shorter than our current conversation, M’Lord.”

“…”

“…”

“Get on with it, Bumbletubs.”

“With enthusiasm, M’Lord.”

“But not too much enthusiasm, Bumbletubs. I am developing a migraine and you know how enthusiasm exacerbates my condition.”

“Yes, M’Lord, I shall mute my enthusiasm to an appropriate level.”

“I appreciate that, Bumbletubs. You were saying about the grashbal…?”

“Ah, yes, funny story that, M’lord…”

Cheers!
