Friday Drabble: Friday Afternoon

Remember, a drabble is a very short story of exactly 100 words. Feel free to join in and write your own drabbles on Fridays and tag them with “friday drabble” and on Twitter with the hashtag #fridaydrabble.

This has a different take, but obviously the same inspiration as a drabble from about this time last year.

Friday Afternoon

It worked.  He was here – and He was there.

Carson pocketed the TimeStream and adjusted his uniform’s straps and helmet.  He hoped it was good enough to blend in.

The day was eerily quiet as he made his way to the hilltop, except for the keening of the women.

A guard watched him approach and looked away. Glancing up, Carson saw the thorns were there. His throat caught, and he palmed a vial. The nail through His feet looked more like a railroad spike — and yes, they were still bleeding.

Carson collected a few drops. His blood.  His DNA.

  1. I love these–you’re really good at grabbing people in a short time frame but how’s this going to work with being less than 1/3 in length for the 30 words/ 30 days? Staying tuned…

  2. First I’ve heard of a drabble…by the time Friday rolls around I’m lucky if I can produce a dribble. However, I seem to be all about the challenge(s) lately so I’ll give ‘er a shot after I recover from the Blogging A to Z Challenge.
