Only thing better than a normal Friday Night Drabble Party? A Friday the 13th Night Drabble Party!
It’s like the Universe had me in mind when making the calendar. Thank you, Universe!
So, to celebrate this most holy night of slasherific slasherness I give you this drabble! I serve it up on a plate of pan-seared liver with a side of fava beans and a nice chianti. Mmmmmmm!
A Hard Night’s Work
“RUN!” I scream at her. “Go get the car!”
I toss her the keys, but they slip through her fingers, falling into the thick mud at her feet.
The rain pours down on us, creating red rivulets of blood that flow down my skin as my wounds continue to bleed. I can’t believe he cut me. Deep. Am I dying? Am I?
“There he is!” she yells at me. “Just past the trees!”
“THEN GO AFTER HIM!” I shout. “Do I have to do everything?!”
What was I thinking hiring an assistant? There’s a reason we serial killers work alone.
How’d ya like that one?
Disclaimer: They were warned…They are doomed…And on Friday the 13th, nothing will save them.
Here we are again, folks! Another Friday, another Party, another Drabble!
Huzzah to the hu and the zzah!
Hey, see that mock cover to the right? The one that says Natural Born Cyborgs? Have a click and pre-order that puppy! I’ve been working on the outline and story and soon there will be some updates for y’all! But be sure and get in early.
Now to the drabble!
In A Flash
“It steals your soul,” whispered Alyse. “That’s what my priest says.”
“That’s crazy,” Wilma said from the corner of her mouth, trying to hold her smile. “Now shush.”
“But what if it does?” Alyse asked.
“Please don’t move or talk,” the man behind the large box said. “It will ruin the photograph.”
“Hush,” Wilma warned. “Be still.”
The flash was almost painful and Alyse shook her head while blinking her eyes repeatedly.
“Is that all?” Wilma asked. “When can we pick it up?”
“Give me three days,” the photographer said.
“Do we pay now?” Wilma asked.
The photographer just smiled.
