Friday Night Drabble Party!

Another Friday is upon us! Huzzah!

Y’all want some micro-fiction? I know you do! I’ll skip the promos this week. Hopefully, being the decent human beings that y’all are, you’ll click on one of the pics at the bottom of the page or perhaps check out the list of novels above. Because you are decent human beings. Decent. Human beings.

On with the Drabble!

Enjoy!

I Got You
By
Jake Bible

He could feel the warmth leaving her body. He could feel her heartbeat slow and her breathing become laborious. He could feel her dying.

“Hold on,” he said. “Almost there. Only half a mile more.”

He adjusted her weight, careful not to exacerbate her wounds, shifting her body across his shoulders. He felt like his legs would give out, but he couldn’t let that happen. If he did, they’d both be dead in minutes.

“Hold on, girl,” he said. “I got you.”

She whined softly and licked his face then rested her head against his shoulder as he continued hiking.

Cheers!

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Happy Friday!

Yes, it is time for another Drabble Party, but this week is kind of crazy and my brain is focused solely on finishing the next Roak: Galactic Bounty Hunter novel. Gotta keep the word flow going, yo!

So, instead of 100 words of original fiction, I give you an 100 word excerpt from my latest release: Mech Corps. It just so happens that I was able to find exactly 100 words to use. That rarely happens, y’all. I hope you dig the excerpt and feel like picking up the novel. What’s it about? Check it out below!

Enjoy!

The human race is about to be without a home, Earth having been turned into a toxic wasteland by decades of war and centuries of neglect.

Now united and desperate to put down new roots, humanity sets off across the galaxy. But, the galaxy isn’t as hospitable as people would like.

Humanity needs a miracle to survive against the first alien race they encounter. Good thing they have that miracle in the form of a team of 30-foot human-piloted battle robots known as the Mech Corps!

The massive xeno dodged each punch she threw, answering the attacks with whipcrack shots from its tentacles, knocking Roar off balance again and again.
“Chomps! Anyone! Can you read me?” Roar yelled into the comms. “Come in, goddammit!”
“Roar? Your signal is weak. What’s going on?” Chomps replied.
“In the shit!” Roar shouted. “In the shit!”
She cried out as pain shot from her left wrist up her arm. She looked down to see five tentacles wrapped about her mech’s wrist, all squeezing and twisting with enough force that the metal alloy was showing signs it was about to buckle.

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Once again, the week ends and another Friday night is upon us! Let the games begin!

Okay, there aren’t any games. There are 100 words of awesome, though. You take what you can get in life, am I right?

Let’s get to those words now, shall we?

Enjoy!

Leashes Required
By
Jake Bible

“Is it breathing?”

“How should I know? You ever seen anything like it before? I haven’t. Maybe it doesn’t breathe.”

“Everything breathes, man.”

“That so? It could be an alien. Aliens might not breathe. You don’t know shit about aliens.”

“I think it’s a dog.”

“Not a dog, dude.”

“Could be an alien dog.”

“Then it’s still not a dog, it’s just an alien.”

“An alien dog.”

“Not an alien dog!”

“Should I poke it? Maybe if I poke it, it’ll start breathing.”

“Or maybe it’ll bite your face off.”

“Aliens really need to start leashing their dogs.”

“Sweet Jesus…”

Three Were Left
By
Jake Bible

Three were left. They stood in a row, their bodies battered, their minds numb, their souls lost. Three were left.

One looked down at her right hand, barely seeing the bloody blade.

Two stared straight ahead, the memories of murder fading fast from her mind.

Three closed his eyes and hoped he’d be the last one. His lips moved in silent prayer.

Three were left.

They moved like lightning and struck twice as hard.

One’s blade bit. Two’s memories helped her none. Three’s prayers were almost answered.

The hands struck, the body crumpled.

Two were left.

But not for long.

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Yes, yes, I know. It’s been a couple of weeks. I’ve been busy, okay? Sheesh! 😉

But, seriously, I have been busy. Health stuff (gallbladder will be going bye bye), work stuff (finishing a novel), life stuff (uh, life stuff, stop being nosy). It’s been a crazy few weeks.

But now I’m back!

Before we get to the 100 words, please take a moment to either buy tickets or donate to the Asheville High School Theatre Troop 2237! They were chosen as the best in the State of North Carolina for their one-act play, Spoon River. Now they get to go to Nationals! But, as many of you know, there is no money for the Arts in this country. And that was true before the Cheeto-In-Charge took over. So, if you can spare a few bucks, please donate! Every dollar helps them get to Lincoln, Nebraska in June!

Now, on to the Drabble!

Enjoy!

One Hundred Feet
By
Jake Bible

The excavator tore into the hillside, ripping up trees, bushes, flower beds. It shredded what had once been considered the most beautiful landscaping in the neighborhood.

“Load it all up and head down to the gate,” Willis said. “Come back for as much as you can get.”

“You think this’ll hold ’em?” Bollen asked. “I don’t know if we can pile it high enough.”

“Not much choice,” Willis said. “You got this?”

“Yeah.”

“Good. I have to check on the watchtowers.”

Willis walked off, knowing that even a hundred feet of dirt and rock wouldn’t keep them back.

Nothing could.
