“I will love you til the day I die,” he had sworn to her.
“True,” she thought, with an uncaring glance at his bloody corpse.

They survived by living off the land. They raised chickens, grew their hair long, and protected the levee.

Dam hippies.

He looked down at the hole in his chest. It didn't matter, he'd won, he hadn't expected to survive.

Unfortunately, there's a hole in this twabble -- it's too short.

Possible fix:
Cory looked down at the hole in his chest. It didn't matter; he'd won. He hadn't expected to survive; it was a damn big zit.
:P

Ah RTFM!

How about:

He looked down at the growing red stain. Didn't matter, he'd won, he didn't need to survive. The fireball washed it away.

I know, not humorous, which seems to be the trend. I was aiming for triggering imagination on what the character had done. Perhaps the fireball gives away too much of what was in my mind rather than leaving it to interpretation. Oh well, it's just a first attempt. :)

Several non-humorous twabbles have "won the contest". The only thing a twabble has to do is tickle Norm's fancy. (But make your Checks payable to ASiD.)

The deformed character string wept softly. Aspiring to be accepted as a twabble, it resolved to amputate an e with a knif

My muscles ache.
My thoughts, muddled.
Every movement is agony.
Thick brown liquid fill my mouth.

Loving Fear

Fear held him in a lovers embrace.

"I don't think I can trust you," he said.

"Don't worry," she said. "Nothing will be ok."

Is this the result of "If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with"? Still, it's not easy to imagine "Nothing will be ok" as a sweet nothing.

Continuing my exploration of breaking through fear and how it might hold one back.

Well, when your first choice doesn't work out, accepting suffering becomes an option.
Ask anyone who owns latex underwear.

Mom yelled, "Draxyn! Turn that silly game off!"
"It's not a game!" he griped.
He hit the power, and so our universe ended.

They hid the brightly colored eggs before any of the children awoke. The Easter wasps flew back to their nest and waited.

The dolphin adjusted his hat and coat, watching the yellow busses hungrily. School was out; it was time to catch dinner.

Thanks so much! I've been on a microfiction bender since listening to three Drabblecasts in a row on a car trip.
