When you can’t use a phone.


I was getting out of the shower when I noticed it, a tiny drop of blood.  It was sliding down from my tattoo, the “freckle” on my chest.  Desperately I craned my neck, trying to figure out what was wrong, some explanation other than the one that leapt to mind.

I turned on all the lights and stood dripping in front of my mirror.  Flesh eating bacteria was a more welcome option than that this was how I was going to find out something terrible had happened.  I was certain this sort of thing WOULD happen, if something HAD happened to him.  It …… it couldn’t NOT.

I have never been so relieved to find an insect bite.

  1. Wow! You scared me. Phew. It still could have been some sort of sign, though. Maybe this means that you were spared this time but…oy, maybe I have an overactive imagination. Based on this post you would be great at writing suspenseful fiction stories.
