95: [Sweet Dead Baby Doll]

#flashfiction

I watch my baby sister from across the lawn. She has her back to me, soft breeze lilting the tips of her yellow hair. I want to creep closer, but I cannot. A shiver is tracing the contours of my spine as I worry my raw lower lip.

She sits so beautifully still.

My breath is held. My fingers tighten around the knife in my hand, blood silently trickling from where there is too much flesh pressed to the blade. It slides down into the grass causing an almost black splatter in the warm sunlight.

Mother and father are lying in the kitchen. Their throats are cut and their eyes wide with preserved screams. My hand is not shaking.

Meet My Main Character Blog Tour

The other day, the lovely Shonda Brock, author of Eternal Traces, tagged me in the Meet My Main Character blog tour. But it wasn’t just me that got bitten so you should check out the other authors on Shonda’s post!

Here are the rules:

The taggee must write a post answering the same seven questions about their MC (main character). Then the taggee becomes the tagger and chooses five other authors. It’s sort of like a chain letter with all the potential to become a global virus.

Oh Damn, I’m Late!

I should have posted sooner, but I’ve been quite busy getting words in on Baying For Blood and working and chores and a myriad of other things. Not to mention that we are moving into the summer season at work and thus everything is becoming just that little bit more hectic.

You’ll be glad to know that I am much better than I was when we last spoke. I have to admit that I felt like death warmed up that particular day. That isn’t to say that I’m not currently writing to you from in bed.

My other half has gone to stay with his dad for the night, unfortunately for me. I hate when we’re parted for long periods of time. It makes me heartsick for him.

Anyway, he’s going to some kind of air show or military tourist park or something similar with his dad and his granddad tomorrow so he needed to be there from the bright and early.

I still miss him, though.

Run Down, Reviews, Parents & Progress

Once again, I’ve not been feeling very well over the last couple of days. In fact, I seem to be suffering from yet another cold (no doubt caught from colleagues who like to share). So I apologise if there are any typos or such in this post, but I am feeling very dozy.

Me and Mr Bear. Clearly before I was ill.

Yes, perhaps I should have left an update until I was feeling better. That is true. However, I haven’t updated you in a week due to late nights and visiting sick parents and such.

Perhaps I caught the cold off my parents?

Perhaps… But my mum is the one who has been suffering and not due to a cold. She’s been in a lot of pain, which has had her once again off work – something that she hates to be. So before I started feeling ill I visited her to see how she was.
