paper cutter (0;00;00;00)

On Auntie Jane’s first day teaching, she discovered three of her students were missing fingers. Embarrassingly, she didn’t notice until handing out the safety scissors, even though one of the digit-deficient boys had already twice put his hand up, wanting to be excused to use the bathroom (“I didn’t do it all the first time”). – Excerpt from “Auntie Jane VS The Nine Fingers.

A new teacher tries curing her students of the “bad luck” caused by their inappropriate number of fingers.

Appearing in issue 2 of Deciduous Tales, alongside stories by Betty Rocksteady, Eric Reitan, Rachel Cassidy, Rhoads Brazos, Thomas Vaughn, Serena Johe, and Matthew Brockmeyer.
