For as long as I remember, I’ve been terrified of blood. Everything about it makes me physically ill. The way it looks, the way it dries up and even the way it smells. But this year, I had made up my mind. I was going to stop living in fear. I was going to do everything I’ve wanted that I had been too scared to do. It was time to step out of my comfort zone.
And with that in mind, I walked into the building. Sure I was sweating and shaking but I wanted to do something nice. Something generous. So today I was going to donate some blood for the first time in my life. I walked towards the reception where a nurse was already staring at me.
“I would like to donate some blood,” I informed her.
“Um… Ma’am, you can only donate your own blood here…” she explained looking bewildered.
“I see,” I tell her.
“And preferably not in a bucket…” she continued.
“How interesting,” I reply. I sighed and walked away. The one time I try to do something nice. Just my luck, I guess.
About “A Generous Donation”:
I know, this is my second short story this week but it’s the spookiest month of the year and the spookiest day of the year- Friday the thirteenth. And although I hate the movie with the same name, I do adore horror and writing short horror stories. I hope you enjoyed this one and I’m not going to lie, I will definitely be sharing a lot more short stories this month. They’ve been quite fun to write!
Also, I finally watched Halloween Ends. It’s the final Halloween movie. It was as good as I expected it to be lol. With sequels I like to not get my hopes to high. It wasn’t bad or anything, it just wasn’t great. And that’s okay. It was still quite entertaining.
What did you think of “A Generous Donation”? How did you spend your Friday the thirteenth? Let me know in the comments below because I would love to hear from you. Or simply stop by and say hi!
