Warped Dentist (100-Word Flash Non-Fiction)

You’re in bed, crying.

You want to cry loud enough to be heard, but you’re too old to wail.

The truth is you have toothache; toothache that is so painful it’s like a red hot iron is being pressed on your brain by some warped dentist that thinks this technique will speed up the growth of the teeth.

Because the pain isn’t just in your mouth. That’s where it starts, but it’s seeping upwards into the very place you need peace in order to sleep.

So you cry.

The next thing you know it’s morning, and your eyes are puffy.


Thanks for reading.
