3 quick excerptsA Story by Mike Lamb
random, from Jack's Inferno
1. She slowly straddles me as my eyes meet hers with intoxicated lust. She has a look of innocence about her that is remarkably convincing. She smiles and says something about something that I can't recall. I make a witty remark about something irrelevant.
2. I duck under an intricately spiraled spider's web. Its architect, an overfed black widow, is playfully tearing the legs off of a fly. Her mate hides in a dark corner of the web, staring at her. His eight eyes are filled with apprehension.
3. A crunching noise breaks the monotonous silence. I look down and see the crushed skulls under my heel. Bones cover the ground like Autumn leaves piled up in an un-raked yard.
S**t. And things were going so well.
