Live Bait

Copyright - David Stewart
Kane eyed the deserted schoolyard with a jaundiced eye. The buildings he saw had potential. There were windows to barricade and way too many points of entry, but that meant an equal number of escape routes if…no when things went south. With the undead hordes growing in numbers daily it was only a matter of time.

He eyed the school bell knowing the noise it made would draw out any of the Shamblers who lurked in the area. He supposed he could have delegated the task but that wasn’t his way. Sighing, he slipped out to do what needed done.

This story was written for the weekly Friday Fictioneers flash fiction photo prompt. 


  1. Intriguing story. Sounds like there will be a lot of excitement soon.

  2. Good story with mounting tension. A good hook for a story with a lot of action. Well done.

  3. Nice vignette, Jeffrey. You got in enough information to flesh out, if you'll pardon the expression, a story, yet leave plenty to our imagination.


  4. Dear Jeffrey,

    I'm a little disturbed by undead hordes. Ew.



  5. Oooh!Dark and scary-zombies!Wonder if he will be able to escape-hope so:-)Excellent writing!
