Micro-fiction – 2


He often wondered what caused the pain in his right shoulder. 

Because he couldn’t see his late grandfather still leaning on it for support.


“Tell me about the most terrible, creepiest, most horrid thing that ever happened to you.” 
“Well, this one time I fell in love…” 

Flesh At Her Heels

She waved goodbye and turned around. She heard a loud crash.
A piece of blood-covered flesh came flying at her. 
His flesh. 
Against a bus.


He became a recluse. He never saw the sunshine, and hardly ate. 
They remembered him years later. The pale skin was peeling off his bones.


He was always working. He could be found tapping the keys of his laptop at all hours. 

He forgot he had died the day he had been fired.

The Tree

It was a strange tree 
But a most delicious fruit 
Everyone was too enticed by the taste 
To notice the blood gushing out of their stomachs.

Spiders Frozen In Snow

She saw all the spiders were frozen. She cast a spell to bring them back to life. 
They devoured her. 
The venom in her blood killed them.


He was tired of failing repeatedly at every task he tried. 
He had given up. 
He attempted suicide. 
He failed.


Red-orange skies. 
Smoke everywhere. 
Corpses burst and bleeding like sick balloons. 

But the cockroaches survived.


The old man refused to drink the wine. He was convinced it was blood. The others called him senile. 

Only one of them knew he was right.


He swept her off her feet. 
She lost her footing. Her skull cracked against the concrete.

    But what's funny about that is, if the flick ever gets made, I would be too scared to watch it! Even spoofs of horror movies sometimes scare me 😛
