Free Fiction: Eternal Love

Every so often I have a piece of short fiction that I believe is worth sharing with the public, but which doesn’t find a home with a publisher. I will on occasion publish one of these pieces here, accompanied by a conversation on what I like about the piece and what I think its weaknesses are. You are welcome to join in the conversation in the comments section.

Eternal Love

by Kyle Aisteach

 

“Do you take this woman to have and to hold from this day forward, for better and for worse, ’till life do you part?”

“AAARGH!”

“And do you take this man to have and to hold from this day forward, for better and for worse, ’till life do you part?”

“HELP ME! SOMEBODY HELP ME!”

“And so, by the power vested in me by the State of Decay, I now pronounce you zombie and wife.”

“HELP ME! PLEASE HEL–”

:: crunch ::

“Tsk, tsk, tsk. Now you’ve got brains on your tuxedo.”

The End

Yeah, so this isn’t a story.  It’s a joke. And a bad one at that. But, zombies!

Let me say that again:  ZOMBIES!

O.K., O.K., so that’s not enough to entice a publisher. But that doesn’t mean I can’t subject you to it.

  1. *GROAN* But seriously, you could totally milk this joke with some description–the wedding could take place at a funeral home, tomb or barn, the priest could be the crypt keeper, or a voodoo witch doctor, the groomsmen could be vampires, the bridesmaids could be ghouls… friends of the groom could be cannibals and friends of the bride could be zombie hunters!
