For those who are new, Rochelle shares a photo prompt to which several #FridayFictioneers compose a 100-word flash of fiction.

Come, sure the first sip might be nasty, but give it a try.

I’ve been out of the loop, my friends. Life has been pitching some wicked sliders. Be that as it may…

Here’s my contribution:

He Called Himself Evan Williams

Humans are pack animals after all; they need companionship to survive, or risk insanity. For Tripp Bennet the habit started as a way to obtain company while travelling for work. He found it quite easy. Any night in every town there’s always a meeting. Tripp would arrive after things had started, noticeably fidget while fingering his white coin, then leave before the close. Inevitably, someone would follow. Tripp didn’t care who, he was equal opportunity. ‘What’s your name’ and ‘how long you been sober’ would lead to more, even if the mark resisted.

Always more.

Tripp suffered a mighty thirst.

    Tripp’s thirst sounds creepy! Nicely done with the right hint of suspense at the end.

    Oh I love this – goosepimples! I can see this as a film – I’d love to read a full story about that thirst. What a great story!

  3. I missed your stories, glad to see you back and in the top form. Excellent story.

  4. Tripp had a system that worked. Too bad for his victims. Well done!

    As if being a recovering alcoholic wasn’t enough!
