We hide in the shadows, away from the blistering sun.
Jaded, I ignore the blood that runs like paint down the walls as my love sweats and trembles.
He says it was a scorpion,
I've seen the red bloom where his flesh was torn, and know I may have to kill him before nightfall.

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."
