Five Sentence Fiction: Zombie

When I saw the prompt for Five Sentence Fiction, I quite literally went Eek! I had thought that the 'Awkward' prompt had been difficult. But then a comment from a stitching friend (who had taken the time to pop over here to my writer-ish blog) had requested more of the story following on from the awkward post...

So I did just that..here is a link to the part that leads to this;

She stood there looking at him, part shock and part embarrassment, she knew that he was waiting for her to say something but standing there open-mouthed, head lolling and eyes unblinking, all she could muster was 'ugh, gur, erm, ig, agh...'

Come on she told herself, you can do this, just say something, anything, standing here acting like an extra from The Walking Dead is really not improving this date. 

She was surprised he hadn't just turned around and walked out already. She needed to refocus on something other than his stare that was very intent on giving her eyeballs a good pummeling.

She tilted her head down and looked at his chest, and there emblazoned across it was 'Night of the Living Dead'...she just might be able to salvage this date yet!

  4. I hadn't seen the first one so I went back to take a look.I love the way you've tied this in and even more so that we are still stuck in that same 'awkward' moment. Really hopig that you a) continue with this and that b) Lillie give us an equally difficult prompt to tie a story together with (but I'm mean like that;). Having said that I now have to try and do the same with mine so I may not be loving this prompt for much longer!

  5. "So... How about those zombies?" seems like a good response to me. Good continuation.

    1. I don't watch horror or read it, the only exception being 'The Walking Dead' but then only the graphic novel version, I don't know why I like it so much as it goes against my normal tastes. But I do love it. Oh! and thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. :)
