Yeah I know, I might be back by this point. I’m just taking advance precautions. So whether or not I’m back at my desk, here’s one last vacation throwback post.
Any of you remember Firstborn? It was a short bit of flash fiction I pumped out one night after a Reddit prompt last year. Short, cute, and also pretty fun, this story will eventually be in More Unusual Events, but right now it’s free to read for all here on the site. When a witch attempts to con a man out of his firstborn child, things go fantastically awry … and not in the ways you’d expect for any involved.
So hit the jump. It’s short, cute, and a lot of fun.
