I had a bit of trouble coming up with the idea for this week’s story, but after much consideration, I’m happy with the end result.
So, only one day late, I give you Friday Fictioneers for June 13.
The challenge is to write a 100-word story inspired by the photo prompt.
Play along by writing your own, reading others and/or commenting on the flashes we fictioneers create.
My piece this week weighs in at exactly 100 words.
As the sun set outside the window of the dental office where Lauren awaited her mark, the special agent’s gaze fell on a tray of sterilized dental equipment. She had been sent to Nantucket to investigate rumors about an undead DDS.
Lauren found it ironic that a vampire would choose to work with pointy instruments and silver alloys. Given the state of their eye teeth, however, vampires had dental concerns that couldn’t be addressed by just any dentist.
As she waited, Lauren suddenly realized that the rumors were true. The tray of equipment lacked one essential tool—the dental mirror.
