A Sweater
by
Jake Bible

The Administrator frowned at the small glow worm that inched its way across the linoleum floor. The Administrator was not a fan of glow worms. Not a fan at all.

“Must you move so slow?” the Administrator asked.

“Moving as fast I can, sir,” the glow worm replied. “Bit slick, this floor.”

“Per regulations it is to be polished every evening,” the Administrator said. “Perhaps you might think of wearing a sweater for better traction.”

“Fine idea, sir,” the glow worm said. “I will do that.”

The Administrator did not believe the glow worm would do that. Not at all.

Call It
By
Jake Bible

“Call it.”

“Heads.”

The coin left Nell’s thumb with a flick and a ting of thin metal. The sunlight caught the quarter just right, sending stabbing pains of bright flashes of light into the eyes of the two very hungover men. Then it hit the cracked asphalt, bounced a few times, rolled a meter to the left, spun for a second, and finally fell flat next to a hunk of discarded chewing gum.

“Tails.”

Allan stared at the coin. “Seriously? Dammit…”

He took several deep breaths to keep from puking, drew his machete, and waded into the sea of undead.

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Welcome to The Flipside!

Yep, we’re getting right into it. This week is all about The Flipside. What is The Flipside? Check it out!

The year is 2046 and dinosaurs are real.
Time bubbles across the world, many as large as one hundred square miles, turn like clockwork, revealing prehistoric landscapes from the Cretaceous Period.
They reveal the Flipside.
Now, thirty years after the first Turn, the clockwork is breaking down as one of the world’s powers has decided to exploit the phenomenon for their own gain, possibly destroying everything then and now in the process.
Former Head of Security for Topside Command Trevon Cash must navigate his way through the chaos of the broken turns and take a team Flipside to try to figure out what is happening. What Cash and the others don’t know is all that waits for them is horror and nightmares– a destroyed base, packs of ravenous carnivores, pterosaurs bent on plucking every human from the ground to be eaten far above, and so much more.
Can Cash and his team stop what is happening?
Or will they end up stuck Flipside forever in a perpetual, prehistoric nightmare?

Gotta love that cover! So, click the pic or click any of the links or CLICK HERE and go get The Flipside!

Now, on with the drabble!

The Original Troll
By
Jake Bible

Once upon a time there was a beautiful–

Don’t you dare say “princess”.

Who is that?

Who am I? Who the hell are you? Some disembodied voice telling everyone what happened “once upon a time” when you’re really talking about now? That’s messed up.

I… I’m the narrator.

No. You’re the guy that wishes he was in the story, so you insert yourself into it. I bet you constantly say “well, actually” anytime someone else tells a story, right?

…no…

Right… Guess what, pal. You’re not the narrator, you’re the freakin’ troll! How’s that for a once upon a time!

Every Page
By
Jake Bible

“Sign every page?” Jack asked, staring at the two meter high stack of paperwork in front of him.

“Every page,” Mr. Slewfoot said.

Jack tried to smile, but his lips wouldn’t oblige.

“The point of making a deal with you was to avoid Hell,” Jack said with a weak laugh. “This looks a lot like Hell.”

“Oh, it is,” Mr. Slewfoot said. “You’re in hell. Paperwork signing Hell.”

“But–.”

“I lied. Your soul is messed up, man. Kelly Blue Book is pitiful.” Mr. Slewfoot grinned wide. “Finish this. I’ll have the next stack brought in. Try not to cramp up.”

Solutions
By
Jake Bible

The executive board sat with their eyes cast down at the chipped and faded mahogany table.

“People,” Deemo cooed. “I wasn’t asking for much. Just solutions. But what have you given me?”

Deemo leaned in close, his mouth a millimeter from a pale, shivering, terrified man’s ear. The man flinched, but didn’t look up.

“Bupkis,” Deemo said, emphasizing each consonant. “Bupkis don’t work in the apocalypse, people.”

Shick shunck!

The blade was through the chair, the man, and back out before anyone could even react.

“What do I want?” Deemo asked.

“Solutions,” the executive board replied in unison.

“Damn right…”
