And Now for Something Completely Different

And Now for Something Completely Different

by Adam Huddleston

 

For the past several weeks, my blogs have focused on defining literary terms and giving examples of such. This week, I would like to begin something a little different. I don’t know if this is going to work or not, but I’d like to give it a try.

Each week I will be posting a bit more of a short story that I will be working on. Due to time and space constraints, I may be unable to submit an entire scene. The passages will be rough, with very little editing. When the story is finally finished (however far down the road that is), I may even attempt to publish it. Feel free to contact me with any constructive criticisms you might have.

Oh, and FYI, it’s probably considered a horror story. So, be forewarned…

 

Superstitions

Sit down friend.

I guess you’re wanting to know about that stadium collapsing. So sad. All those folks getting crushed like they was in a soda can. The news mentioned a “structural defect”. I don’t know about that, but I do know how (or better yet, why) that tragedy happened.

For as long as there have been sports, athletes have clung to a variety of superstitions and traditions. They think it’ll either improve their play or maintain their win streak. And no other game can boast of as many superstitions as baseball. It was superstition that brought down that building.

That and a whole bunch of dirty greed.
