Samantha is Special

Dad was jolted awake and screamed. Then he screamed again, but differently.

Mom ran in. Dad lay face-down, groaning.

Little Samantha stood beside him, holding a sparking wire.

Dad raised his head, and Mom saw… a toddler’s face?

“Samantha, what did you do?!”

“I electrocuted him,” she grinned.

The Metamorphosis

Gregor went to bed one night and woke up as a giant clumsy bug.

His family freaked out and locked him in his room. His little sister fed him garbage.

He scared some old guys and someone threw an apple at him which got stuck in his back.

He died.


This story is a microfiction treatment of Franz Kafka’s classic novella, The Metamorphosis.
