A benign tumor was found on my body last Sunday. Just a lump of concentrated fat and fear, my doctor assured me and sent me on my merry way.

So, I returned to my little home, alone, contemplative and slightly amused.

The TV announcer said a new strain of the flu, was descending upon our tiny town.

Pariah, outcast, vindictive bitch... were all terms my so called neighbors had used against me.

I stuck a needle into the tumor, collected from it the serum. All alone in my tiny home, I waited for my early Christmas present to be unleashed.

    So many ways to get revenge in fiction. I enjoy reading your drabbles.

    would revisit.

    Payback can sometimes really be a bitch.
