Bubble Gum Tongue

by Adrian Ludens

Me and Barry were bunkmates at McCrossen’s Ranch For Troubled Teens. He always bragged about all the tail he’s chased. I had no interest until Barry described the new girl, Candy.

“Cherry lips,” he said.

“Honey hair.”

“Bubble gum tongue.”

I wanted to meet her.

So one night I asked Barry to arrange for Candy to meet me behind the horse barn after ‘lights out’.

We met, but things turned real bad, real fast. I leaned in for a taste and next thing I know, Candy’s screaming and gargling blood.

Bubble gum tongue? Barry’s such a liar. Tasted like copper and raw meat to me.

Awesome story. This is more my kind of thing. Short, nasty and leaves a bad taste in the mouth (literally). One of the better ones so far.
