Drabble Challenge #113

Prompt: closed

part 1 of the Wilder Investigations series: A Different Kind of Zombie Apocalypse

“What part of the words ‘Do Not Open’ did you not understand?”

“But I closed it as fast as I could.”

“That’s not the point. You weren’t supposed to open the box in the first place.”

“How was I supposed to know there was a zombie mosquito in it?”

“If you had waited until I got back to the office, I would have told you.”


“That’s all you can say – ‘Oh’?”

“Okay, I’m sorry I opened the box without knowing what was in it.”

“That’s better. Now, we need to find it quickly before it can bite anything.”
