Flash Fiction Friday: He's Dead, Jim

Flash Fiction Friday
November 25

A Reason to be Thankful




He's Dead, Jim

Corey was gone.  The others paced, shocked. "What happened?"
"Tell me." I caught Gabriel by the arm. He stumbled, his hand a cold grasp on my arm seeking balance.
"Drew and I were ... and we wanted him with us. Came down here... and..." A tear slid from the corner of his eye.
"He hated us together, that much?" Drew's voice was shaky, thick.
"Like he'd think fucking was worth dying? Did you even know Corey?"
"What are you saying?"
"I say bullshit. Who cleaned the mess? Is that fucking Latin?"
"I did. It is."
Ice trickled through my veins.

Be Yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ~e.e. cummings, 1955
