ST100: Popcorn And The Movie Monster by LaVa Payne

He would never eat popcorn without me again!

The red carpet wagged endlessly toward the shelved seats inside the monster mouth. The larynx and throat would captivate him long enough to be swallowed whole while he watched the movie.

It was dark inside the theater—late showing of Revenge of The Tentacles.

Suddenly, I had a premonition. What if I never got to eat popcorn again either?

As the credits rolled down the screen, I went down to aisle 26, seat eleven and sat next to him.

He smiled.

“Want some popcorn?”

Popcorn keeps the movie monster in its seat.
