Micro Fiction…

The following story was written for my friend, Lily Childs, Friday Prediction.  I’m not too sure what the 3 words were for this particular challenge but they mustered up this story.

Hope you enjoy…

THE WRONG OPTION.

“Mr Jones, you need a holiday,” they’d told him. “Your phlebitis has gone but if you keep pushing yourself so hard you’re going to get yourself stressed again. With your immune system at a low, the symptoms could return.”

Throwing caution to the wind, Robert headed over to New Orleans for their annual Mardi Gras.

It was spectacular: almost as spectacular as the fountain of blood erupting from his slashed throat.

Left for dead behind a dumpster in a deserted alley, for a measly hundred dollars, stress looked the better option.

~END~

Thanks for stopping by.

    Nothing like getting rolled the hard way in the Big Easy. Good to see you out and about, man.

  5. Anything with a broken bottle and arterial spray is worth a look. If it’s very well written it’s worth remembering. I’ll remember this one for a long time, David. Cool.
