Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

I searched through photos of the long-gone, their faces mere memories of the past. Nimble fingers picked at random, only to put them back. Always a tough choice—so many options. My mind couldn’t decide what it was in the mood for that night. Then, one stood out among the countless dead. His eyes spoke to mine without words. I wondered what his life might have been like. Had he fought in a war? Was his essence hardened by blood and trauma? One could never know for sure, but sometimes you had to take a chance. I took the picture and handed it to the salesman. He grinned and laid it on the counter behind him. With the ring of a bell, my order had been placed. My mouth watered with anticipation. Moments later, my purchase was carried out on a platter. The gelatinous remnants of a life awaited my ravenous tongue. Neither Heaven nor Hell could accept these lost souls, so into our bellies they went.

Through Clouded Eyes: A Zombie’s Point of View

Through Clouded Eyes: A Zombie’s Point of View: a collection of twelve stories told from the Zombie’s perspective.

They’re shambling toward you, feet dragging on the broken roadway. Arms outstretched, faces slack, they move as if they’re tracking your scent on the wind. You want to run, but you know there’s nowhere to hide.

Aware of their insatiable hunger, fear paralyzes you. These things were once human, people someone loved. Is there anything left inside them – some sliver of humanity that may save you from this nightmare? Your mind doesn’t want to accept the inevitable, a single thought consumes you: what are they thinking?

With your chance of escape dwindling, you snap out of it and run like hell knowing there is little to no hope; fate is coming for you. Soon you will see what they see Through Clouded Eyes…

Featuring stories from Maynard Blackoak, Calvin Demmer, Paul M. Feeney, Stacy Fileccia, Trevor Firetog, DH Hanni, Shannon Lawrence, Josh MacLeod, Zachary O’Shea, Neal Privett, Mark Steinwachs, and Alex Woolf

Available on Amazon!
