“I see dead people.”
The Grim Reaper* #quote
Worked on my video game protagonist design today. Drawing people is hard, and the game's 2D so I have to draw good design since I'll be drawing all the final frames of the character’s animation. Also seizures were down so that was nice. Anyway onto the flash fiction!
The True Reason
The chicken stood on the west side of the road, getting herself ready to make the incredible dash to the other side. It needed to be quick and precise to avoid getting hit while cars passed by. The fastest way between two points is a straight line, and any moment lost could mean she could be run over by a car. She checked the vehicles on the road again and again, but just because she her eyes hadn't spotted a speeding car didn't mean that a one could suddenly come and run her over.
She made her move, a car came, it was of a bank robber making his escape. Her front claws dug into the road and desperately pulled her forward to barely allow her to avoid the wheels. The adrenaline continued to pump as she moved while the cop car pursuing grazed her head.
When she reached the other side of the road she arrived at the Extreme Road Crosser Convention, a gathering of animals who get their rush from the extreme sport of crossing roads and risking getting hit by a car. She was the talk of the convention because of her close call with a car moving over the speed limit, something that more often than not was the death of an extreme road crosser.
