Seat Of Horror – by Hugh W. Roberts
“What is it?” squealed Richard as he tore off wrapping paper while Adrian took photos.
“You’ll soon find out.”
“Not just any chair. Stephen King’s chair.”
“Stephen King?” You’re kidding me?”
“Nope. I got all the paperwork of authenticity.”
“I love it.”
“Get writing that first novel you keep telling us you have inside you.”
“Horror! It’ll be a horror story. It has to be horror, what with it being Stephen King’s chair.”
“Don’t let it go to your head. I’ve hidden all the knives and sharp objects but left you a pen,” giggled Adrian.
Richard and Adrian first appeared in Edge Of Summer – another piece of flash fiction written for the 99-word flash fiction challenge.
