May 31, 2012, Flash, The Finale (double drabble. I'm sorry but this was the only way to end it)

            The cracks in the windshield spidered across the glass.
            The zombie was determinedly battering away, attempting to get through, splattering him with was blood.
            Again, he tried to start the car, and again nothing but the whining of the starter.
            The hole was large enough for the creature to stick its head through and began snapping at him, rancid spit flying.
            He pressed himself against the seat, his right hand scrambling for anything he could use to end this piece of walking, rotting flesh. His hand stretched for the glove box and he felt the rough texture of the Maglite.

Raising the light, he smashed it repeatedly into the creatures gapping, salivating mouth. Swinging it as hard as he could, he dislocated its jaw, sending it flying into the passenger seat.
            With a final swing, he connected with the side of its head, breaking through the exposed skull.
            Its tongue stopped flapping, its arm jerked sporadically, and it was still. He pushed open the door, falling to the pavement, gasping.
            The sun could just be seen. Reaching into the car, he grabbed the rearview mirror and some towels from the backseat. He noticed two long scratches running down his face.

{Saved} (for) 5.31.12

His young face holds so many emotions, his deep brown eyes hold back an ocean of tears as he recounts what happened that day so many years ago.
“I saw him, I saw him murder a man with a machete. He cut off his  head, and he came after me.”
I lean in. He pauses, swallows, and continues. .
“I ran. I ran as fast as I could; he wanted to kill me because I saw him do it, I saw him murder him. I don’t know where I got the legs.”
He pauses again.
“I just know God was saving me for something. I didn’t know it, but he did.”

i can't believe it's taken me so long to post this.. :(

The End of All Year's DrabDayMoMay

Well, kids.  We did it.  We finished out the month of May.  If you wrote one drabble or thirty-one, well done.  If you didn't write any but you read along with us, wonderful.  I am so glad you joined us for our venture.  Thanks for writing, reading, and commenting.  There were some amazing gems created and I am so glad I got to be a part of it with you all.

Already looking forward to next May!!

5-31-2012 Deadly Poison

“Their faces will be the last you see forever!” 
He shuddered as the words ran through his mind. Forever, the man couldn’t truly be promising him that. He would die in just a few short moments. He could feel the poison slowly pumping through his veins, heading directly towards his heart where it would steadily climb to an all consuming pain before his heart stopped and he ceased. 
But he would see their faces. Their looks of terror and anguish as they were tortured and killed, because of him. 
He was the poison that had invaded their lives —  killed them.
