My entry for Chuck Wendig’s Flash Fiction Challenge: 100 Word on the Subject of Revenge. The challenge was to write a complete revenge tale in no more than 100 words. At the very least, I nailed the word count.

The comments to Chuck’s contest have links to many excellent entries. You should check them out.

Oscar’s underwear  snapped and he fell from the locker’s hook to the floor. He tried to catch his fall on his arms, but slipped. His nose gave a crack against the wood. He sighed to the empty hall, “That’s it. Today.”

He stuffed wads of tissue into each nostril, then grabbed a plastic hardware store bag from his locker and headed for the Senior’s lot.

He laughed and shot a red wad of paper from his nose when he found Dave’s car unlocked. Crawling in and onto the floor, Oscar brushed contact cement onto the bottom of the gas pedal.
