I am currently working on a series entitled ‘Night Terrors’. Using the weekly prompts from Friday Fictioneers, I plan to bring  you the entire series.

Be sure to check out the rest of the story here:

Part I Night Terrors

Part II Jonathan Berrier

Jonathan certainly didn’t foresee the side effects of his experiments. Although the test subjects calmed down, there were complications. Within days, the subject’s muscles tightened, their arms deformed, and tumors covered their entire body. Despite these massive changes to the subjects’ bodies, not one of them exhibited pain. This wasn’t what Jonathan wanted to accomplish.

For now, Jonathan decided to promote his elixir as a pain killer. His subjects became addicted to the elixir, and would do anything for more.

In 1971, one of the test subjects escaped. Fully aware of his appearance, he chose only to come out at night.

This is my entry into this week’s Friday Fictioneers. click on the little froggy for more stories based on the photo prompt.
