Explanations Forthcoming... Maybe? (3/22)


An alumnus of both Ficlets.com and Ficly.com. Who, for some weird reason, is starting his time here with an abundance of cannibalism-themes stories. O.o

I wake up to my phone ringing. My first thought: Oh, hell! Am I late for work? Again?

The next sound I notice is the shower running. Good. If my wife, Mari, is in the shower, I'm in good shape. That bit of stress off my mind, I reach out from under the sheets, and fumble to grab my phone off the nightstand.

The caller ID clears any remaining cobwebs.


What the hell?! I sit up, and realize I'm in a hotel room. An expensive one, by the looks of it. I bolt out of bed, and throw open the curtains. I have no idea what city I'm in, but recognize the writing on signs on surrounding buildings, I'm somewhere in Korea.

The shower turns off as I answer the phone, thinking, How am I going to explain this?

"He... Hello?"

"Where the hell have you been?" Yup. It's Mari. And she's pissed.

"I... don't know, exactly, but..."

My heart almost stops when, from behind me, I hear, "Who are you talking to, darling?"

"DARLING?! Who the f..." I end the call.

I'm too terrified (or is it excited) to turn around.
