Tooth & Law (Flash Fiction)

Officer Jim Mulhern crept along with his weapon drawn. No matter how quiet he attempted to be, the sound of crunching leaves and twigs was unavoidable. His partner, Darnell Frost, was having the same issue. “We know you’re out here,” Frost called. “All we want is to ask you a couple of questions.” Mulhern was … Continue reading Tooth & Law (Flash Fiction)

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Twelve

Ryan’s eyes snapped open. The noise was very familiar, yet extremely foreign. He climbed from bed and approached the window then just as quickly ducked as he did and made his way back over to the bed. “George! George! Wake up,” he whispered whilst gently shaking her. She stirred and shot him a disapproving look … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Twelve

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Eleven

It was well into the small hours of the morning before the truck came to a stop. Kas was too exhausted to carry on driving. Jay thought about taking over from him, but instead decided on everyone resting up. They happened across a large house on a hill about a mile away from a sizeable … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Eleven

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Ten

Leaving the town had proven easier than any of them could have hoped. The truck was a heavy, cumbersome thing; it had no problem in flattening any lurcher that stood in its path. Within a matter of minutes they were out onto clear roads. Darkness quickly fell. Ryan stared out of the window and looked … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Ten

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Nine

The message was passed to all that they’d be on the move soon. There were protests, as was expected; however, nobody was going to argue with the fact that staying was simply untenable if the town was about to be reclaimed by the undead. Jay confirmed that they’d be leaving around sunrise the next day … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Nine

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Eight

It was extremely fortunate that Ryan and Kas recognised the path they’d walked along a few days earlier. An orienteering sign with a gnarled tree trunk stump nearby was the giveaway. From that point they knew the town was only an hour’s walk away or so. The number of lurchers had reduced greatly since Ryan’s … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Eight

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Seven

The flames danced with spirit as the fire grew in size and ferocity. It quickly engulfed the adjacent side of the cabin from which Ryan and Kas stood, who were waiting patiently for their moment to run. They could hear the excitable sounds of the lurchers as they were drawn towards the blaze in number. … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Seven

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Six

“I saw what you did.” Ryan’s eyes snapped open as he awoke; he shot up to a sitting position. Kas was glaring at him through bloodshot eyes and broke into a violent coughing fit. It was loud enough to cause Ryan to wince. The lurchers would definitely hear if they were nearby. “The fuck are … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Six

Living the Dream Part 23 (Worthless)

My latest offering in this series isn’t a very positive one. The prospect of worthlessness is very much a fact I’m having to face far more than I wish I had to. In recent times, my depression appears to have deepened. It’s deepened to a level I really hoped it wouldn’t. I don’t mean to … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 23 (Worthless)

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Five

Ryan held his breath. The sound of shuffling feet and the occasional throaty growl could still be heard. At least they weren’t hammering on the side of the shack anymore. He looked across the room towards the shivering Kas whose breathing was becoming increasingly laboured. That was all he needed, to soon be sharing the … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Five
