THE WEP’S THRILLER CHALLENGE, OCTOBER 19-21, 2022, THE CABBAGE PATCH By Pat Garcia @WEP @pat_garcia
Kate often wondered what lay behind the big red barn. She took a look at the face of her watch. Three in the morning. She had a flat tire and didn’t have any mobile reception. Leaving her car, she walked towards the barn to see if a house was on the other side of it.
A large cotton field with sixty-inch rows with no end was behind the barn and circling to the other side. Between the rows were patterns of squares laid out like a checkered board.
What kind of seeds can be planted between cotton in the shape of tiny squares?
Her curiosity got the best of her, and she stopped and walked in that direction to look and see.
Reaching the first square, Kate gasped.
This cannot be, she thought.
Tiny little heads of babies, the sizes of small miniature cabbages, were planted in neatly placed squares. Severed from their bodies, the moonlight showed their eye sockets with tiny wildflowers growing through them.
Have a lovely Autumn and be safe.
