This year I'm writing Micro Fiction (or Flash Fiction) that is 100 words or less around a set list of words provided by my BFF (Kemari Howell). Today's letter is "D", so today D is for Delusional.
The World Wide Web: Feeding Delusions since 1993
Dagby hunched over her laptop, throwing shadows across her bedroom walls. Her husband’s snoring masked the hum of her computer as she tapped the keys, searching her symptoms.
Headache, nausea, fatigue… pain.
She glanced at the wound on her arm—even in the dark, it looked angry.
I hate cats.
She continued to read, stopping occasionally to feel her face or take a deep breath.
Progressive symptoms include: anxiety, confusion, terror.
She looked around in the dark—heart racing.
Hallucinations, paralysis, DEATH!
She slammed the lid shut and pulled the covers up over her head. Tomorrow she’d call her doctor.
Feel free to leave your short pieces of fiction (<100 words) in the comments below. The word for today is Delusional.
