Cupcake, An Alan Smithee Drabble

by Nic Drew
Originally published by on 30/08/2015

There can be only one, one more customer. As soon he'd be shit out of cupcakes. Bad timing - as outside, that was no moon and mostly customers came out at night, mostly. He needed a bigger bakery. But if he built it, would they come? A guy enters, eyeing a particular set of tills. The guy moves closer, closer - clearly presenting a danger - so he tells him these aren't the cupcakes he's looking for. He's left shaken but undeterred. Some drunks arrive - unsurprising - as my God, the town is full of bars. And like that, the last cupcake was gone.
