100 word fiction – Something sinister for breakfast

Another 100 word fiction exercise for today. If you missed an earlier post on 100 word fiction, the three rules are as follows:

  • It must be 100 words or less.
  • The prompt will be mentioned after the story.
  • It must be written in under 30 mins and then it goes up onto a post as is, with no additional editing allowed, no pondering on it for a day or more.

Something sinister for breakfast

He lightly pressed his index finger down the diameter of the plate, just to hear the squeaky sound. He did the same move with his mug, then again with his knife, and again with his fork. It was routine, when washing the dishes.

The pan was going to need the strictest clean of all. All the grease gone. Spotless.

Then he would need to consider. Should he freeze the leg and foot? And the remaining organs only keep so long in the fridge. Jane would respect her being kept that way. After all, she had made for a delicious breakfast.

Prompt: Cleaning the dishes

Lexicon word of the day: incommodious.

    And in this way, he’d always have something of Jane deep inside him…

    Well done! It was unexpected despite the title of the post.

  4. La La says:

    Nice! You’re really good at this.

    Ooh, creepy. I like it!

  6. Organs?!?! Well, I never saw that coming! Excellent work in 100 words!! That’s a skill! The no editing bit would scare me… I edit and edit… too much in fact, sometimes the magic is in the rough edges…

      Thanks – It is a good practise exercise. You can edit whilst you write but not go over the 30 mins. Well actually you could do it however you wanted to, but I find the discipline a nice challenge. I would agree that sometimes too much editing removes a bit of the magic, or a bit of the personality of it, if you want to see it that way.

    Whew, definitely creepy. And well done for no editing. Not the kind of stuff I can write!

    • Elliot says:

      Thanks – Yes you have to be on your game to edit as you write and within the time limit. I’m just learning as well but it is a good exercise to try out.

  8. Foot is not very filling so use for soup broth.

    Hope the steak was tender…

  10. Very satisfying breakfast read.

  11. Some of us must be in a creepy kind of mindset lately – I’ve read several blogs with creepy stories and poetry on them. This was so short and yet packed quite a punch – just the kind of thing I like 🙂

    • Elliot says:

      Thanks – This was sort of part of an idea I’ve had for years on an unwritten larger story. I don’t know why it popped into my head when it did. I wrote this one in he back of the car straight after the previous one.
