Countdown

“I leave my playstation … To no one. There won’t be anyone left.”
The world played on normally outside his window.

Just a Quiet Dinner Party

Jenny wandered into the kitchen, shielding her eyes against the lights.
Pasta clung to the walls. 
Chunks of half melted cheese hung from the ceiling. 
Tomato soup pooled on the floor. 
The salad sat patiently in the bowl.
And where were her friends?
So much for a quiet dinner party

Hey Siri

Dan surveyed the film scattered before him.
“There has to be something I’m missing.”
Bodies, splayed open and surrounded by a hodgepodge of mystical ingredients, stared back at him.
He really thought a handful of cinnamon would be the key.
“Hey Siri, how do you reanimate a corpse?”

And yes, I asked Siri how to reanimate a corpse (to my disappointment she did not deliver anything funny).
