Worth It
By
Jake Bible

He counted the coins before him for the hundredth time. Possibly the thousandth time. He could no longer remember.

“Worth it,” he muttered as the stacks of gold began to totter. He straightened them, steadied them, watched until they were stable again. “Worth it all.”

He kept his eyes focused on the stacks, not on the occupied chairs in the corner of the room. He couldn’t look at those. If he did then maybe it hadn’t really been worth it.

But it was worth it.

“Was worth it,” he muttered, ignoring the chairs, ignoring his family’s corpses, ignoring his regret.

Cheers!

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Bam diggity! The FNDP is back, y’all!

Had to take a week off because of ConCarolinas. It was a great weekend, but I am glad to be back in the writing chair so I can give y’all some free micro-fiction.

No schilling this week. Just give a click on any of the categories above if you want some more Jake Bible goodness.

Enjoy!

Inevitable Catcall
By
Jake Bible

One woman held the man to the pavement while another reared her foot back for the blow.

The man tried to protest, but the layers of duct tape that covered his mouth easily prevented that.

The foot found its target. The duct tape crumpled. The man screamed for thirty seconds then passed out, choking on his own teeth.

The two women walked off. A block away there was the inevitable catcall.

“Sounds like someone needs duct tape,” the holder said, grabbing for the roll on her hip.

“Yeah, it does,” the kicker said, bouncing up and down on her toes.

Cheers!

Wake Up
By
Jake Bible

“MONKEYS! RUN!”

They could not run. Not fast enough, at least. The tiny simian nightmares were everywhere. In the trees, on the roofs, jumping out from behind bushes, driving cars.

Driving cars?

“Carl! Wake up!” Stan shouted.

Carl’s eyes popped open in time for him to swerve the VW bus to the right, avoiding the oncoming traffic he’d drifted into.

“Whoa,” Carl said. “I had the craziest dream…”

“MONKEYS! LOOK OUT!” Stan yelled as a wave of the little buggers overtook a Cadillac and swept across the road. “THEY’RE EVERYWHERE!”

“Huh,” Carl said. “I hope I wake up.”

He didn’t.

Cheers!

Friday Night Drabble Party!

So, it is Friday once again.

Usually that means some free micro-fiction, but unfortunately that isn’t going to happen this evening. Way too much going in life and work and all that to get to the 100 words of magic.

But, hey, that doesn’t mean y’all can’t party without me!

Break out that word processor and see what 100 words you can come up with. Play, have fun, get wordy with it, yo! And, if you feel inspired, share that stuff and put a link in the comments below. Or even cut and paste your 100 words of goody goodness for all to see! Seriously, let my forum be your canvas.

Or some other mixed metaphor.

Hope y’all have a great weekend!

Oh, and don’t forget to get your tickets to the Authors For Action: Kill The Bill event! Help fight HB2!

Cheers!

Friday Night Drabble Party!

It’s Friday!

There be a Drabble in your immediate future. Huzzah!

Before that happens, just wanted to let everyone know that I’ll be in Rutherfordton, NC for the MayFest Super Signing! I’ll be there with great authors such as Beth Revis, John Hartness, Brian Rathbone, Darin Kennedy, Gail Martin, Matthew Saunders, and more! Come on out if you can!

Now, on to 100 wonderful words!

Enjoy!

The Botanical Apocalypse
By
Jake Bible

The vines worried at the manhole cover, their tips spreading, thinning, working their way under the edge, looking for leverage. With a strength that should not have existed, the cover was lifted, shifted, pushed and moved to the side, barely a clang heard through the empty, abandoned street.

The air below –precious carbon dioxide– was intoxicating. The vines had found them. On they crept, their verdant brilliance muted to a boring grey as the sewer’s shadowed environs encompassed them.

The last humans cowered. They huddled in the dank alcoves of their ineffectual refuge. The botanical apocalypse had found them finally.

Cheers!
