Morning. Time to check.

Donny rolled out of bed and bee-lined for the bathroom. He wasn’t normally an early riser, but he couldn’t sleep in today.

He flicked the switch and winced as the blaring light attacked. Shuttered his eyes, then blinked, turned to the mirror. Combed his hair back with a hand and leaned toward himself.

The red crescent still hung above his right eyebrow.

He slid his hand across his left arm from wrist to inner elbow, brushing back the hair like wheat in a windstorm. The snake-like mark that stretched around his arm looked a little longer this morning.


After you vote, leave a comment below: which story are you most looking forward to, and why?
