Writing Prompt 04.21.18 – Post Card


Setting: Jersey City in the late 1800s
Lone woman pushes a stroller up the street.
Man leans in to give baby a kiss.
Woman: “Damnit, I know he is cute. But please keep your immigrant germs off my child.”

“Ahhh!”

“Oh God!”

Woman: “Damnit, George. Not again.”
The woman looks back to find her son gripping another man’s nose firmly with his teeth. Blood quirts in every direction. The child gnaws away with glee and squeals with delight as the man frantically tries to shake him off. The woman grabs her son by the feet and gives a little tickle before the child releases the man’s nose. The child looks at his mother, with excitement in his eyes, sharp teeth protruding from under his blood-stained upper lip. The woman presses her son’s face to her chest and quickly scurries away.
