Talk Show - A 100 Word Story
June 01, 2009 flash fiction
"So Sandy," Gerard said, "you say that Kut-Haran isn't a good husband."
"He doesn't give us krat!" the female kobold screeched. The studio audience roared approval.
Gerard pointed to stage left. "Well, here he is!"
Kut-Haran was not a kobold. He was a nine foot tall troll. The studio chair broke under his weight. This episode Gerard would have to keep it calm.
"Okay, Sandy," Gerard said, but she was screeching obscenities at Kut-Haran. The crowd shouted, chanting Gerard's name. When the troll grabbed its club, Gerard buried his head in his hands.
He didn't get paid enough for this.
