Luck of the Wild

Post by WeaselMaster »

Ted couldn’t believe it. A dead body, lying alone in the forest. No one around. He checked for the fifth time. Silence.

He got down on his knees. Staring at the man’s gray hair, lined face, serene expression. No bloating, no redness. He must have suffered a heart attack just hours ago.

Ted felt his guts churning. He practically threw off his coat and tore at his shirt, breathing hard.

The mandibles uncurled from his sides. Their tips slid into the corpse’s stomach soundlessly.

It had been so long.

With a dreamy grin and a contented sigh, he began...to drink.
