Short Works:"The Moving Finger"


"The Moving Finger"
Fiction




Howard Mitla is stunned at the sudden appearance of a solitary human finger poking out of the drain in his apartmentís bathroom sink. Afraid that the finger may attack him, Howard tries everything imaginable to get rid of it, from heavy-duty drain-cleaner to chopping it off. But what plagues Howard most is the thought of what, or whom, that finger is attached to.
