Microfiction: Chili

The room was on fire. The chair he had been sitting in was melted from an errant drop of the stuff. His shirt had a stain that was slowly growing into a hole.

And Howard stood looking as it burned, more dumbfounded than upset.

He pulled out his phone.

“Hey, uh, Kevin?” he said.

A pause as he listened to the reply.

“Yeah, uh, I tried your chili. I feel like you might want to make it a little less spicy next time.”

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.”
