She used to like torturing insects. She found nothing more enjoyable than squishing a spider, flattening a fly, or crushing a cockroach.

Her friends all thought she was strange. Her mother kept telling her, you'll be sent to hell!

Funny thing life. Death, not so much.

Turns out the red guy liked a good joke as much as the next. Now she has the rest of eternity to enjoy an insects life.

Every day, running for her life, trying to avoid being crushed. And when they catch her...unbearable pain.

Then, she wakes as another nasty, and the day starts over.

    Great to get a drabble from the gaffer, Michael! Great one too... I love alliteration and I love Karma stories too. What flies round, comes round! It is particularly piquant at this time when the flowers in our gardens are enjoyed by so many flying friends. Hope you’re well and not too busy... and hope to read more. All the very best, and thanks.

    A truly horrific piece of horror, I mean that as a compliment. ;-)

    Thanks all! I guess finding three big crawlers in your flat within the space of a few minutes leads one to such thoughts!

    You don't drabble much, Michael, but when you do it's a doozie! Another great one.
