#SnippetSunday: The Rooster, the Wolf, and the End

This week on Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors: the end of my terse, depressing little story.  I hope you’ve enjoyed the ride, which has been both long and short at the same time.  Watch out for those costumes, they’ll get you every time.


Stepping over the rooster, Jake headed for the door.  “Lee doesn’t have to eat.”

“I don’t want to hear it.”

Jake shrugged and opened the door, the white afternoon light made his eyes water.  He should have brought a coat.  “Quit,” he said, then closed the door on the rooster and the bug-eyed wolf.

Eli checked the mirror and adjusted his vest.  It wasn’t laying right.  He moved it again and again, but it looked slanted to one side or the other every time.  He stood in front of that mirror for ten whole minutes, sliding the vest left and right, barely breathing, sweat dripping down his shirt.  His knees were weak, swollen, and distended.  Felt like he was going to fall over, and there was no one around to see.

 


There’s my Snippet for the week, I hope you enjoyed it.  If you did, I encourage you to leave a comment, perhaps explore the rest of my site, and maybe Sign Up for my mailing list.  All it takes is a name and an email and it nets you free copy of Break,  as well as some bonus content for Headless in the near future.
