Frogs covered the intersection at the churchyard. The rain had lured them out and they had appeared in massive clusters – hundreds of small, green amphibian bodies hopping across the wet asphalt, making tiny splashes on the roadway. They sat there in the remaining drip-drops of water falling from the sky, poised looking upward, chirping forth their devotionals. The cars that drove over them to attend the church worship service never even felt the soft bodies squish under their tires. The remaining bits baked to crispy slivers in the morning sun.
NOTE: The brief narrative above was brought to you by TZ Books and The Bite-Size Fiction Project, created by Dave Baldwin and Sheila Lee Brown (this particular one is a Sheila-story). The results of this project are bite-size story morsels for short attention spans. These tidbits are sometimes fun, sometimes weird…but always short!
