Flash Fiction: “What Happened”

Here’s a strange little thing I wrote over at TypeTrigger the other day, based on the prompt “what happened.”


What Happened

“I came as soon as I heard what happened.”

“I’m so glad you’re here.”

“Has there been any change?”

“No; things seem to have stabilized, more or less.”

“Well thank goodness for that. How did this start?”

“I don’t know… I just woke up this morning and rolled over to see if he was awake, and there they were!”

“How many, at that point?”

“Just the three, this morning. Since then, another nine. It’s slowed down a bit now, to about one every half hour.”

There was a soft squelching pop from behind the curtain, and a male voice said, “Whoop!”

“There’s another. You’d almost think he was enjoying it!”

“Well… I mean, really, why shouldn’t he?”

“I… The man has something like a dozen eyeballs growing all over his body! It’s MONSTROUS! One of them is in his belly button, for heaven’s sake!”

“It doesn’t hurt to be open-minded about these things, though. Let’s just try to see the situation from his perspective.”
