His Appetite

This week’s Write On Edge (formerly The Red Dress Club) was to write a story in 140 characters.  I admit, I cheated. I wrote this for NYC Midnight‘s Tweet Me a Story Contest earlier in the year, so some of you may have seen it before. It’s 135 characters.


His finger slid down the knife’s edge and into his mouth.  The salty tang of  blood whet his appetite. There would be more death tonight.
