Dorian #8

by

Chris will vomit uncontrollably over himself when he sees small lumps of his own flesh, glistening crimson with edges tinged dark purple, fall from his face as he wipes his eyes. And when his clawed arthritic hands reach up to wipe puke from his mouth, they will rub against teeth, not lips, though small crumbs of remaining flesh will adhere to the sticky blood smeared over his hand. And when, finally, he drags himself agonisingly into the study, he will throw himself down and sob inconsolably beneath the portrait of the handsome young man smirking down at him from above.

    Nice reversal of the original Dorian. That whole concept reminds me of something they could've done on The Twilight Zone. Now that I think about it, I need to re-read the last drabble and do it in Rod Serling's voice!
