Skip Miller Wins!

Flash Fiction, by Skip Miller
The Last Human
The sun shone on the body of the last living person in the world, as he gasped his final breath and fell silent.
From over the hill came Zork. “I told you I got it,” he shouted, jumping up and down, his one huge eye watering with tears of joy.
El followed not far behind. “You got it alright, just be quiet about it, or we’ll have to share it with the others.”
“I can taste it already.”
“Well you better enjoy it, that’s the last one. I told the elder, we should of left some to breed, so we could come back later, but would he, would anyone listen to me? NO! Now we’ll have to find another planet with life on it.”
“We couldn’t help it, these taste so good smothered in vegetables.” Zork pleaded.
“Would it have hurt just to leave a few for later? When you’re having to eat some Luk or Dell, you’ll be wishing you could make a trip back here for a taste of Earth.”
