A Drabble for Saturday: Cantaloupe


I thought I’d grab it. You know, get in, get out. It’s not like it was going to last much longer and if I didn’t take it, someone else would.

What I wasn’t expecting were the rest of them. All just as hungry as myself; looking, hoping, searching.

It was a bloodbath.

I’m not even entirely sure what started it. There were quite a few of the fruit on the table. But someone must have wanted them all. The first punch lead to weapons, weapons lead to death. And all for a melon or two.

I don’t even like cantaloupe…

So what’s a Drabble? It’s simply a piece of flash fiction that runs 100 words.
