.population control.

Trifecta: Trifextra week Ninety-Two.
This weekend the Trifextra challenge:
In The Scorpio Races, author Maggie Stiefvater writes, “It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.” Give us the next thirty-three words of this story, as you imagine it. Take it wherever you like, but make it original and make it 33 words exactly.

…he was the one this time around.

running for his life, gust of wind
razor blade across his skin.

his shoe unties…he trips.

there’s no where to hide from
their thirsty daggers.
