Flash Friday: What’s It Worth to You?

“I don’t take cash.”

“But I need the stuff.” Darrin’s arm twitched. “Come on, man. I’m tweaking here.”

“You know what I take.” The Dealer showed all his shiny teeth.

Darrin closed his eyes. “It’s my last one. I can’t give you that.”

“Once you give it to me, you’ll never miss it.”

Darrin’s well-bitten lip trembled. His arm spasmed. He groaned in pain. “Fine. Anything. I just need. Please.”

The Dealer stabbed a needle into the base of Darrin’s neck. The memories floated out of him.

He whispered, “Goodbye, Carey.”

The Dealer handed over a cylinder of white liquid. “Take with care, my friend. Your payment has been made.”

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?
