The Nerve

She had allowed the nightmare that was this social engagement incubate too long in her mind.  Her vanity would simply not permit another woman, another prettier woman, to be seen in the same dress that she herself was wearing. “Really, the Nerve” she said as she picked up the nearest steak knife and began slashing off the offending dress, oblivious to the fact that it still had a (not for very long )  living body within it.

Incubate, Nightmare, Vanity

  7. Have you ever seen “Serial Mom”? This is the kind of thing that would have been good in that movie. I like it (but then I have a dark soul that way).

    My favorite bit is the repetition of “another woman” but with the inclusion of the all-important additional word.

  9. Indeed a brave take on the prompt. Last line twist gave me chills.
