Never Be Forgotten
By
Jake Bible

No one could have seen it coming. No one.

Even the megacorporations had no idea it was the end. They were oblivious to the crisis right on the horizon. Always busy with current Profit & Loss statements, never thinking of the future or the consequences of their actions.

When the stores began to run out, people brushed it off. No one even considered it a possibility. The end? Never. Can’t happen.

But it did happen. And when it was finally all gone, civilization collapsed. Mayhem. Murder. Misery.

The day the last carton of ice cream was sold will never be forgotten.

Humans…
By
Jake Bible

Gray tossed the book into the drawer and shoved it closed. As he moved away from the bedside table, he scratched at a patch of dry skin on his leathery cheek and surveyed the motel room.

There was a knock at the door. “Housekeeping.”

Gray opened the door.

“The human that occupied this room. Where did he go?” Gray asked as the woman stared up at him.

The woman screamed and ran. Gray watched her go, annoyed. Humans…

Then the black sedans arrived in the parking lot. He shook his bulbous head and sighed.

Always with the black sedans. Humans…

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Let’s all say hello to another Friday!

“Hello, another Friday!”

Hey, before we dive into the 100 words, how about you take a look at something brand spanking new! (Not sure why we say “spanking” new. Weird…)

It’s Agent Prime!

Denman Sno is Agent Prime!

The best of the Fleet Intelligence Service’s elite Special Service Division, Denman Sno will need to use all of his skills and resources to stop the galaxy from plunging into another War with the alien menace known as the Skrang Alliance.

Sno’s assignment: protect and deliver Pol Hammon, the galaxy’s greatest dark tech hacker, to Galactic Fleet headquarters.

Hammon is in possession of new technology that can and will change the landscape of galactic life. The Galactic Fleet will do anything to keep that technology out of the hands of the Skrang Alliance even it it means sacrificing their best agent.

Even if it means sacrificing Agent Prime!

Murder. Espionage. Romance. Treachery. Greed.

Agent Prime is prepared for it all!

 

Yeah, you wanna read that, don’t ya? YOU DO! Click away!

Now, on with the drabble!

Curlycues
By
Jake Bible

The spokes of the bicycle wheel were swirling curlycues of blood; completely mesmerizing.

Bobby turned his head and looked at the bike. He’d built it from parts with his own hands. No help from his father, no help from his friends. Piece by piece, he’d bolted that bike together.

He was enraged that it would turn on him like it had.

Picking himself up, Bobby limped to the bike, pulled his .45, and shot it. It had betrayed him, but he wasn’t going to let it suffer. He wasn’t cruel like his father.

“Time for a new bike,” Bobby said.

Impossible Body
By
Jake Bible

“Of all the specimens I’ve collected, this one is my favorite,” Mr. Rege stated as he gestured towards the display case. “As you can see, it is perfectly preserved. Until this find, only partial examples were ever found.”

Morgan stared at the multi-limbed…thing. It was suspended in the display case by thick wires, its impossible body hung for all to see.

Then it twitched.

“Uh…Mr. Rege?” Morgan said, tapping him on the shoulder as the man continued to address the other guests. “It moved.”

“Nonsense,” Mr. Rege said as the display case shattered into a thousand pieces.

Writing In Suburbia #60: The One Where I Interview Myself! And Fail Hard…

Welcome back, y’all!

It’s time for episode #60! Woo hoo!

In this episode, I attempt to interview myself. No, seriously. It’s all part of a new segment I’ll be including in Writing In Suburbia twice a month. I’ll be interviewing writers and asking them two questions: Why do you write? and, What was, or still is, the hardest part about being a writer?

I’ve already got some great interviews recorded.

But I thought it would be fun to break y’all in with an interview of myself. Fun? Sure. Funny? Yeah, I crack myself up.

So, have a listen and enjoy!

Cheers!
