The Balloon People

Post by Squishbot » Mon Mar 24, 2014 7:29 am

The contortionist began moving himself into another awkward position to the amazement of the spectators gathering along the street. As he bended and twisted into what would become a puppy dog, there was a loud “CRACK!” and a shriek of dismay as one of the children in the front row, who was attempting to emulate the contortionist, popped. “That reminds me folks!” the performer said jovially, “you shouldn’t try this yourselves, I’m a professional hyuk hyuk!” The parents shuffled quietly away while all that remained of their child, a wrinkly, shriveled flap of rubbery skin, floated away on the breeze.

Thank you! I've just started getting into Drabblecast and hearing about all you folks and your stories was the push I needed to finally start submitting! I know it's a little late, but I would have voted for Deathmole.
