Terribleminds Flash Fiction Challenge: 100 Words on the Subject of Revenge

This is for a flash fiction challenge from Chuck Wendig's website terribleminds. The goal is to write a story about revenge in 100 words. Here goes:


I'm sitting on a hospital bathroom floor, staring at the sharp steel in my hand. This got me into this damn place, I think. You'd think that three stays in locked psych units would be enough to get me to stop.

But for some reason, I can't. I'm hooked. I love dragging the point over my skin, feeling that orgasmic rush when the first drops of blood come out. Still, cutting's ruined me. Look where I am.

I'm getting tired of this shit, I think. Fuck you, cutting.

And I dropped the razor.
