Argument with a ‘Sleep Zombie’

Time for fun. A prompt from a writing group. The challenge is to create a story using 26 sentences, each beginning with a sequential letter from the alphabet.
Here is my effort:

sleep zombie‘Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!’

‘Babe, you were having a bad dream.’

‘Can’t you see I was asleep?’

‘Do you like having nightmares?’

‘Eh? For goodness sake, what have I told you about waking me up?’

‘Go back to sleep.’

‘How can I? I’m awake now.’

‘Just shut your eyes and lie still.’

‘Know what?’

‘Look, let’s stop this bickering, babe, you’re tired.’

‘Maybe because you keep on waking me up!’

‘No, I don’t!’

‘Oh, you liar!’

‘Please! Quit having a go at me. Relax and go back to sleep.’


‘That thing you do when you’re not moaning at me.’

‘Unbelievable! Very well then…’

‘What do you mean, ‘very well then’? ‘Xcuse me, babe! You’re not answering my question.’



If you’ve ever argued with a sleep zombie and recognise these symptoms you may need to get Better.
Have you ever laughed yourself to sleep?

      Thanks, Lizy. It was a ten-minute wonder, short and sweet to write.

    That was very good! Well done on your cunning ploy on that oh-so-difficult “x” :-)

      Q, Z and X, always difficult. A lot of the other stories entered featured xylophones and X-rays. (Only joking) we were allowed a bit of artistic license with the X.

Tell me something...
