Drabble: Bloody Mary – by J.J. Litke

by specklit

Jessica set the candle carefully on the bathroom counter. “I can’t believe we’re trying this. I feel like a kid.”

“Don’t wimp out now.” Lauren pushed Jessica toward the mirror. “You said you’d do it.”

“Okay okay.”

Jessica stared at her reflection and took a deep breath. “Bloody Mary. Bloody Mary. Bloody Mary.”

Mist swirled up in the mirror, drifting out over the counter. Slowly, a shape solidified—a highball glass filled with red fluid, green garnish jutting from the top.

“Oh my god, it worked!” Jessica whooped and high-fived Lauren before picking up the drink. “Now you try it!”

Author’s Note: This is still a horror story because tomato juice is a terrible thing to do to vodka.
