"Turning to Stone" in the DrabbleCast
November 08, 2010My 100-word story "Turning to Stone" is in Drabblecast 186. Yay!
You have no idea how thrilled I am to be in audio, to be one of the "strange authors" bringing strange stories to strange listeners, such as yourself. Sure, I've got the text below, but you should take the time to listen - Norm did a great job with the audio. (There's a single synonym for poop before my story, FYI.)
For Drabblecast listeners who are coming from the podcast (or those who don't know), you can also find more of my stuff at my main website.
Turning to Stone
She offers to wash my clothes, and her hair's scales slide across my skin.
"No," I say. We stand on the porch of our... her place. I look out over the lawn. The apartment key is in my hand. I remind myself that I am leaving her.
"I could make dinner," she says. Another snake winds around my leg, smelling of chili. "You could crash here." This snake holds my neck, smelling of sex.
I see her hair, the snakes, reflected in the windows.
Her hair turns me. I meet my girlfriend's gaze.
The apartment key clatters on the ground.
