The Last Of Adam – by Hugh W. Roberts
Adam watched time disappear, but he also witnessed his life slowly disappearing.
“Where am I? Why can’t I see?” he bearly whispered.
The final thing Adam remembered was being a passenger in his girlfriend’s new car. She’d just passed her driving test. Had the truck been on the wrong side of the road?
The faint sound of sobbing and two familiar voices began to disappear gradually.
“Are you sure he’s dead, mother?”
“No, but it won’t take long. Adam will never escape from the coffin we’ve buried him in,” she said, looking down at the grave. “You’re safe again.”
Written for the 99-word flash fiction challenge hosted by Charli Mills at the Carrot Ranch.
