The Day

He ran the blade across his face. Stubble was always an issue for him. He couldn’t remember ever having an entirely smooth face.

The mist in the mirror began to fade. He reached up and gave it a wipe with a dry towel.

He dropped his razor into the sink. His reflection grinned with a flicker of red in its eye.

Today was the day.

    1. Haha, hey your blog’s tag line has ‘keep it suspenseful’. πŸ˜›

      If you finish the story on your blog, I would be happy to link back to you on Little Fears and social media. About 40k followers so would hope you get some traffic out of it!

    1. Ooo yes and no! There’s a larger narrative to the horror fears. Malcolm’s story comes to an eventual end. The Little Fears stories from… August’ish on-wards form larger narratives for its characters. Though the horror ones have an awful lot of ambiguous endings. πŸ™‚

    1. Hey hey knitting lady. Welcies and thank you. My missus hand spins her own sheep fuzz into wool balls then create marvels (to my mind) that keep my feet and head warm. No matter where I look in our home there is wool in various states of creation. So, by default, I am interested in wool, even though I often have no idea what wool I am looking at. πŸ™‚

      1. Well Hello Fears ? Curtsy to the missus for spinning what a beautiful art. I have been totally interested in spinning and have had my husband influencing me to do so. I finally bought a hand spinner and a bag of blended wool and it is not easy. If you guys are interested I would post a picture of your spun wool on my sight as a post. If not that’s ok too?

          1. I’ve made wool socks for my husband he wanted them for camping but since I’ve never worked with wool and didn’t look it up I washed them and you know what happened next? Shrank to an unimaginable size. Live and learn.
            Thanks I’ll use the link to share with Donna

  1. Deeply creepy! The pic looks a little like the Peperami ‘too spicy for ya’ wurst-geezer… Who is also creepy, although not as much as the kiddie in the Tina Turner ‘Proud Mary’ AA ad at the moment.

    1. Arf, thank you. Loved the Pepparami adverts, even if I am vegetarian. πŸ™‚

      Haven’t seen the Tina advert yet myself.
