Jilly read the trilogy over lunch…stuffing the words into her brain like a pig snuffling for truffles.
After work, starved for more, Jilly decided to see if the movie was still playing. It was and she quickly purchased a ticket. She was the only person in the theater so after sitting down in the best seat in the house, Jilly prepared to feast.
The usher found her hours later. Dead after eating her own arm. The odds had not been in Jilly’s favour. It was a small tribute to pay to know she’d never have to see the sequels.
A drabble is a very short story of exactly 100 words. Exactly…so no cheating. Feel free to join in and write your own drabbles on Fridays and tag them with “friday drabble” and on Twitter with the hashtag #fridaydrabble. Thanks to Stevil for the inspiration.
