Last Night

Post by FordBenjamin » Mon Mar 18, 2019 8:38 pm

I drove her home and put the car into park as she came in for a kiss. My hand gently pressed to her shoulder slowing the advance.

I leaned my head down in the driver’s seat and unlocked the thin hasp just beneath my hairline. Her eyes widened as I slipped off my mask; human dimensions replaced by crocodile skin and an elongated snout.

She fumbled for the door handle and walked into the gleaming headlights. Click... a small whoosh narrated her skin falling away to reveal the granite scales of a Dragon. She moved closer to begin her feast.

I like the twist on the trope of the predator becoming prey, and it was entertaining and well written, so much that I kind of forgot it was a trope in the first place. Which is exactly how to do it. Good job.

Thanks for passing this along, Zimmerman. Great job on the artwork and it's a real thrill to have you bring the Drabble to life for everyone. Thank you again, this made my day.
