A Handsome Family Short Story

In exactly 108 words

Jeff Drew

The Octopus uses three hearts to pump its blood. It thinks not only with its small brain, but with nerve clusters in each arm. In captivity these crafty invertebrates will crawl from their tanks and dismantle plumbing, causing costly flooding. The octopus hypnotizes prey by waving its arms rhythmically in the water. Witnesses report swarms of salmon frozen around a single octopus.

“Those waving arms were so beautiful,” one man said. “I almost jumped overboard.”

A distraught woman followed the wet trail of her missing pet octopus for miles before realizing she was walking circles.

"I still see him everywhere," she told interviewers. “Even with my eyes closed."
