Halloween Half-Pagers: Strange Incarnation

Halloween Half-Pagers Strange Incarnation

I really thought I had died. There was a car accident, then blackness. When I woke up, I was standing in some dirt surrounded by dozens of strange green plants. They were as tall as me and made up of one long, narrow leaf. Trying to move, I could feel my feet buried in the ground, but they budged. Calling out for help, I heard no reply, only the wind. It felt so weird, I couldn’t move at all, heck, I couldn’t even see my hands. Then I heard a rustling sound among the plants. Bursting out between the plants was a giant black beetle. Terrified, I tried to move but still couldn’t. All I could do was remain still and hope it didn’t notice me among the green leafs.

Oddly the creature ignored me, walking by and disappearing between the strange plants. Now I wanted to scream, I was trapped in some sort of nightmare garden full of monsters. As my terror subsided, I noticed a great rumble that was approaching me. The plants in the distance started moving, acting like something massive was pushing them. As it came closer I saw that they weren’t being pushed, they were being cut. As a huge whirling blade headed toward my head I realized that it sucks to be reincarnated as a blade of grass, and yes it hurt to have my head chopped off, but I soon grew a new one.
