When A Bad Relationship Eats At You

Outside the world is going to hell. Inside, John Ripely is drunk, heart broken, and ready to film himself with a hooker to teach his girlfriend a lesson. Events quickly fall out of his control.

Tanner by D.S. Black is a zombie flash fiction piece. I knew that going in, but, somehow, Black still surprised me with the turn of events towards the end. I'm wondering if the outbreak had been unfolding around Ripley prior to his hooker hook-up, but he missed the warning signs as he put all his focus into the end of his relationship. The what-ifs surrounding Ripley's night are more entertaining than his revenge plot.

It would have been funny if Tanner had been the new boyfriend...

As always,
