Vicious

Do not click the link if a) you haven't had your lunch, and b) you have aunts who are fond of puckering up? I will not be held liable for any nightmares, waking or otherwise, or family disputes.

My flash (because it's bright and blinding) story Vicious Vanity is today's story over at the most wonderful 'The Daily Tourniquet'.

You've been warned.

The more eagle eyed of you may have noticed that my story at 52 Stitches is by the most wonderful Cate, and that this is by Catherine J, and that's because there's change in the air. Catherine's stories are running thin and Cate is about to usurp her position - she's been working very hard in the background and most of you have already seen her most brilliant website. Am I insane? Of course, I like it that way.

Yikes. That's one dysfunctional family.

That story reminds me, I need to go brush my hair.

Very graphic, I loved it.

Aaron Polson said...

At least her hair will stay in place now. Lovely and gruesome.

Yeah, I was particularly pleased at the method by which the hair was secured. I love it when families make mine look normal!

Seriously, very well done. As usual your titles are awesome, too. Two of my favorite words: Vicious and Vanity. I should've known it'd provide me with lovely images.

Cate Gardner said...

Thank you all for taking the time to read the story, I feel like I've been want, want, want lately. :)

Cate Gardner said...

Samantha, her knife is sharpened and the J is already dead. :)

K.C. Shaw said...

Aiyiyi! That was creepy and icky, yet had me grinning too. Gruesome little story!

So the change from Catherine J. to Cate is imminent? I think I can adapt. :)

Cate/Catherine - you're both productively nuts! That story is crying out for Hollywood. And hair products...

Ahhhh, hugs from aunts.

Danielle Ferries said...

Oh, and by the way, I loved it :)

Such detail! Any more and the smell of rotting flesh would have upset my stomach! Great job!

Barry Napier said...

That story should be listed as the perfect example of how to start a flash story. GREAT read, Cate!
