Sample Sunday

Today's Sample Sunday is a little different. I've been toying with the idea of writing drabbles as a sort of writing exercise. Something to flex the creative muscles without having to spend a lot of time on it. Drabbles, for those who don't know, a drabble is a 100-word story. The idea came from a Monty Python book of games, and the game called Drabble basically said the first person to write a novel won, and in order to make it work in the real world they limited it to 100 words. So there we go, and here you go:

"I don't recall asking your permission to date him!" screamed Kati.
Buddy sighed and buried his face in his hands. "It's not that you didn't ask permission," he said after silently cursing the Gods for creating teenagers. "It's that you didn't bother talking to me about it. What if it had gotten serious?"
Kati huffed and crossed her arms. "And what if it had?"
"Because Drockae may look human, but they're not. It's very likely he would have tried to eat you after your first time together."
Silence filled the room. Then, "Oh."

And that's my very first drabble. See you around!
