Spooktober 2022 Day 29: Hunger

Content warning: stalker mention

Hunger haunted the hollows of your heart where my absence left you empty. You wanted attention. Views. Likes. Comments. At first, these from anyone would do. Admiration from the masses filled the gnawing emptiness within you.

Until you got my attention.

Then, anything less would not do. I had only to sit back, watching your efforts to consume me grow wilder and wilder. A little starvation here. A little there. I became your white whale. 

Screen light reflected in my eyes as I smiled, knowing your next step would be to find me in person. I’d baited my trap perfectly.

Thanks for reading!

Little Blue Marble 2022: Warmer Worlds

Featuring “I Hope This Email Does Not Find You!”

The last eight years have been the warmest on record.

Little Blue Marble‘s anthology of speculative climate fiction and poetry from an international slate of authors mourns and hopes in equal measure for the fate of our world and its ecosystems.

May these visions of the future inspire collective action before climate chaos becomes irreversible.
