Molted flesh pushed through openings between the boards, shearing rotted ribbons of skin.
I had done my best to protect us. I swear I really tried.
But these thoughts died. Everything had died.
The cracking of wood filled the room. My only thoughts whispered to someone who was already gone:
“Happy anniversary…I love you baby.”
This flash fiction story came from H.E. Goodhue.
Goodhue's novel Zombie Youth is published by Severed Press.

A Zombie Author Flash is exactly 55 words long. It may be factual, creative, or a “flash-fiction” story. Ideally, the author flash will represent something essential or unique about the zombie author. Jule welcomes contributions from zombie authors or their reps. Original work from any of the zombie authors will be greeted with squeals of delight and published faster than you can say "zombie apocalypse."
