• Blade Meets Skin

    Alexia reached back around her seat to pull out the hand-held blade she kept for in case of emergencies. Holding the blade, she nervously brought it closer to her. She closed her eyes and gulped.

    "Wait! Alexia don't! You can't use that!" Christine, Alexia's friend, yelled from the passenger seat.

    "I will." Alexia whispered.
    Bringing the blade up with one hand, she could see Christine shaking her head from the corner of her eye looking at her with wide eyes. Raising the other hand, she brought both hands together. The blade began to peel back the skin. With her mouth watering, for now the skin was completely peeled back, she took a hungry bite into her perfectly ripe banana.
