“gopher” a fifty word story (Humpbuckle Tales 13)

At school, before The Incident, he was called The Gopher.

“Need something fetched? Dave’ll go for ya!”

It wasn’t a free service.

Brian befriended him when the enterprise made Dave rich and popular.

After the bridge, everything changed.

Dave lost friends, money and his mind.

Brian made sure of it.

This is the thirteenth in the series of Humpbuckle Tales. Each story is precisely 50 words long. They are meant to be independent stories, but if you read them all you will find each one adds another piece to the puzzle – there is a bigger story that is being told.

This story was first published on my Hive blog (@felt.buzz) and you can find all the stories on the @humbuckletales Hive account – at the time of posting this I have just published 6 more Humpbuckle Tale there (so we are up to number 24). On Hive I publish 12 stories per week (Monday to Saturday one story per day and then six 50-word stories in one post on a Sunday).

If you prefer the drip drip drip approach keep coming back here for one 50-word tale every day!
