[Flash Fiction] Late Delivery (Nightgale, 3 of 4)

I’ve written a short piece called Late Delivery, the third of four short stories for the NIGHTGALE Blog Challenge from Glitterword. You can read it here. In a spooky coincidence, it is exactly 666 words.

Thanks for the opportunity to take part in this challenge, Stevie!

  1. Very awesome, and my favorite line is definitely “I understand time’s ouroboros.” I really want to find an excuse to deliver that line myself now.

    Great contrast between Laslo and Nick–and I was sad but not surprised to learn of Jen’s demise. The whole scenario presents a haunting conundrum of what comes after death, then forces it to immediacy by bringing death suddenly instead of leaving it on the horizon. If Laslo is right that all of them are going to enjoy a better state there’s some comfort in that, but at the same time sounds like the kick-off of a zombie apocalypse.
