The flood had subsided, but no one was celebrating.

I stood on the deck alone, a pariah, for no fault of mine. They blamed me for the ending of the human race.

But how was I supposed to know that Noah’s wife would have a heart attack upon seeing a cockroach in her cabin?


272 characters.

Written as a part of Kat Myrman’s Twitting Tales #150 – 20 August 2019

Note: I know Noah’s family (three sons and their wives according to Wikipedia) were also supposedly there on the Ark, but this was more fun 🙂

    This is in line with the oft-told belief that the last inhabitants of the earth will be the noble cockroach.
