Unfit by R.J. Benetti
This one made my cringe!
The story is bonkers and not for the faint of heart - if you like babies. Great short! Benitte is a true talent for stories that challenge the reader. I dare you to read this at a baby dedication at church. Have fun!
Great short - make sure your Love card is activated
An excellent short story-I really dug the turn it took in it's short time. To say anymore would spoil the experience. Highly recommended!!
It's hard to believe that you can pack this much punch into such a short space.
These seven pages are a fairgrounds twisted AF mirror house horror show/dystopian nightmare. I would recommend Unfit for fans of Godless Horrors. If you haven't read it yet, do. It is only 50 cents.
Some Of Us Are Just Unfit
Unfit is a fascinating mix of dystopian science fiction, bizarro, and splatterpunk that blends smoothly into a narrative that is equal parts disturbing, heartbreaking, and sardonically hilarious. Clarissa has a crying baby in her cart. We've all seen it before, many of us having experienced it from Clarissa's perspective. It's frustrating. It's embarrassing. Other shoppers judge her as she desperately struggles to get the baby to be quiet...but nothing calms the infant. There's only one way to silence the crying and screeching, and this is where everything takes a particularly dark turn, followed by a few more turns. R. J. Benetti has essentially written an episode of Black Mirror that hasn't been optioned yet, and it's almost a shame this isn't a more visual medium, except that I'm not sure anyone would want to see this played out on screen. If you're looking for social commentary and bleak prognostication, this is the story for you.
