Flash Friday: The Shepherd’s Demon

You shouldn’t leave the sheep. They need you.

Yes, I know the big glowy man said to look at some stupid baby, but what does he know? He never had responsibility a day in his life. The sheep need you more than some brat.

Well, I suppose you should go. I mean, he told you to. And if you want to get in with this, what? This Christ? You should go. He’ll owe you then. First on the scene and all that.

No, no. He didn’t come for you. You’re going for him.

Stop. Stop wondering. He’s just a kid. One who owes you a favor now.

STOP WORSHIPPING!

FLASH! It’s Flash Friday, the day when Seeking New Earth authors write short stories up to 1000 words (“flash fiction”) or 110 words (“microfiction”). Both are sure to instigate the imagination and stimulate the synapses. Did you like what you read? Want to explore the story some more? Or maybe you want to try your own hand at some flash fiction?
