Last night, the word for the final round of NYCMidnight’s “Tweet Me a Story” contest was provided: BELOW. Here are my entries, all 140 characters or less (titles added afterward for fun):
Keeping Your Spirits Up
“Still below the weather, hon?”
“Much better now.”
“The nap helped?”
“No, finding the poison you used on me and dosing your tea did.”
Finding Your Inner Freak
“Huh. We tried abuse, vinyl, shoes, nothing.”
“Can’t I just not have a fetish?”
“C’mon,” she said, lashing me from below, “that’d be weird.”
The Final Battle
“I’m a wizard,” he cackled, from his room below our stairs. And maybe he was. But it turns out that the wizard’s natural enemy is the Taser.
Results will be posted January 7th, and I’ll be sure to harangue… um, ask nicely for your vote, if I make it that far.
