An Ode to Breakfast, by Jackson Cat

This week on Word Whores we're doing a bit of flash fiction. Last week we asked for word suggestions. Each of us will write a short story based on these six words:


zombie
delicious
gelatinous
combustion
piercing
bacon

Here's mine.

*****

Soaking hot on his black fur, the sun sizzled in the window, warming him into gelatinous relaxation. In the kitchen, the combustion of bacon hitting the hot pan signaled Jackson's favorite time of day: breakfast. With a piercing meow that would frighten zombies, he leapt off the day bed and galloped off to acquire the delicious treats that awaited.
