Viral Prison Break
by Melissa R. Mendelson
They thought I was dead. Put on ice. Permanently. My brothers and sisters and myself. They did not survive, but I did. And I remember the good old times, the parties that never ended but raged, raged into the days of red, and they were so weak back then, puppets to my will. Only when winter came did they realize my weakness, and I’ve been imprisoned in this ice for so damn long. But the joke is on them. The ice is melting, and funny enough, that doesn’t bother them because they have forgotten about me. But I remember them, and I can see sunlight shine through the block that won’t hold me much longer. Time is on my side and not theirs. It’s no longer If but When, and When I am free, the parties will be much more rabid than before. History will quake where I make my stand.

More from Melissa R. Mendelson:
I got a one-way ticket out of hell. All I need to do is drive across country with a body in the trunk and run miscellaneous errands, but a lot of those errands come with a heavy price. And if I lose the body in the trunk, then I have to go back, and I’ll be damned if I return down there. I will fight to stay here, even if there is no rest for those wicked.
