STORY IDEA #286: Neck Ache

A new story idea every single day.

Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.

Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#286: Neck Ache

A guy cracks his neck and it won't stop aching. He does to all these places to try and get it sorted. Even the Chinese medicine place where they say it's not just an ache. Something terrible has attached itself to you.

Of course he tells them to shut up and instead goes to a Yoga class.

The yoga teacher tells him to do this ludicrous move and right in the middle of class there's a tearing sound.

They all look to see the man's neck on its side has split open.

But it's not what it looks like. There are jagged teeth that line the open wound. And suddenly, a tongue, long and slender like a tentacle slips out and begins to lick his own face.
