Final act…

  The pistol’s muzzle poked at the nap of his neck, repeatedly. KEEP TYPING, ASSHOLE! Each time he hit one of his vintage typewriting’s keys, his seven broken fingers made him wish he was dead already. Had he known that a complete stranger would break into his house and torture him for hours, he would…… Continue reading Final act…

Tantrum…

  Andromeda held the fragile creature crying in her arms. She was as perplex as her circuits would let her.

She had already…… Continue reading Tantrum…

    Sitting in the large armchair, he leaned forward to run his knotty fingers in the golden retriever’s fur. At first, the puppy didn’t react, deep asleep in the semi darkness. Another gentle stroke, waking the furry fellow. As he gave the next pat, the dog’s hairs started raising along its spine. He could…… Continue reading Evening pats…

Early harvest…

      Cibelle wandered, barefooted among the bushes. Around her, the inviting fruit were making the fragile branches bend, but for some reason she was torn at the idea of harvesting the precious loot.  The winter had been harsh, and she wanted to believe that the early offering was a reward. She brushed the…… Continue reading Early harvest…

Grudges…

    Her high heels clattered on the floor, as she walked to the counter, and picked the bottle of Château Lafite. You’re lucky, John… I don’t like to hold grudges. It messes with my sleep. He still wondered why she hadn’t sent one of her hitmen to gut him out. She usually wasn’t on…… Continue reading Grudges…

As you might know, a little while back, I decided to participate to the NYC Midnight Challenge for the first time. I say a little while back, but seen how long the wait to get the results has seemed, I might have sent my story in a decade ago. The wait is over, now. Drumroll please……… Continue reading The results are in…
