TERIBBLEMINDS 4th of July Challenge

This week, the challenge over at Terribleminds was to write a story under 1k words about something that happens on the 4th of July. Something dark and nasty, preferably thriller/horror…my favorite.

Below is my humble offering. Technically, the deadline isn’t until Friday at midnight, and I would’ve liked to have another day to tweak it–but we’re leaving to go on vacation later tonight. So yeah, that ain’t happening.

[EDIT: 9/23/11 This piece has been given the necessary tweaking, and is now being shopped around for publication.]
