Bored of the Flies

by Alexandra Erin


"So," the pig head said. "What have you been up to lately?"

"Nothing much," Simon said.

The answer was always the same. The pig head knew that, but it kept asking.

"I'm thinking of a number," the head said. "Guess what..."

"666."

"Damn."

As afterlives went, haunting an uninhabited island was one of the worst.

Good God, It's true! Terrible memories... High school analysis... *shudder*

Nice pun with the 666 thing though. Original, yet consitent.

Ha ha ha. Oh, that's clever.
