Drabble Challenge #13

Prompt: superstition

“I’m serious. Put it in your mouth.”

“Yeah, but what if I accidentally bite down?”

“It might taste bad, but you’ll still be safe.”

“I don’t believe you.”

“Come on. As your big brother, do you really think I’d steer you wrong?”


“Not with something as serious as this. Put it in your mouth.”

“I don’t want to.”

“Just do it already will you? I don’t have all day.”

Randy looked down at the red welts on his arm, then up at his older brother. Closing his eyes, he put the wad of poison ivy leaves in his mouth.
