FF – Late Night Snack

Here is my story for Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle. This week’s photo was contributed by Ronda Del Boccio.


Greg moaned. Lying on his back… the moon? No, a streetlight. Oh… his head… way too much whisky… so much whisky… a van… someone coming… wearing a mask, a hypodermic needle… no, no… hauled into the van… moving… smell of food… blackness…


“Hey, Baz, fast food! Fancy a kebab?”

“Dunno, these fast food vans can be a bit dodgy.”

“C’mon, sissy! Just a shame we lost Greg somewhere along the way. Hey, mate, two kebabs!”

“Of course, sir, new delivery of meat just in, very fresh!”

“Awesome! Wow, nice. My kebab tastes like single malt. Magic!”

    Haha! I accidentally read the second part first, and in confusion I looked further up. It worked awesomely that way as well, maybe even better 😀

    Dear Ali,

    Oh dear…fresh meat? Greg Kebabs? Had I been sipping a beverage it would surely have sprayed my keyboard.

      Dear Rochelle,
      A most flavoursome treat 🙂

    I’m impressed they could tell the flavour was single malt rather than blend. Perhaps it was a peaty malt

      They are quite impressive when it comes to alcoholic beverages.

    Poor Greg! Well, I suppose he could have met a worse fate.

    But I think it’s a bit harsh to blame a good Scotch when it’s men who chopped up poor Greg!

      It may have got Greg into that bind in the first place, but it ultimately added to the flavour 🙂

    I’ve always suspected as much. One bad kebab turned me off them for life.

      I can imagine. That often happens with food poisoning, though our protagonist seems to quite like his 🙂

    Damn whiskey… probably something in the kebab!

    Gulp. Great fun, but oh dear… are the kebap people in league with the pub I wonder?

    Wonder if they do ribs? According to some cannibals it tastes more like pork, though I am unwilling to do a taste test. A long way to go before humans become the new bacon.
