The Pill

Payment at the end of the study was huge.

She wasn’t desperate. She just hated her life.
They had her sign multiple forms.
Then, they started her on the experimental drug.
She’d a poster of Hendrix on one wall & first night of the pill, she found Jimi climbing out of it & making sweet love to her.

He came next night too & then the next.

Hallucinations, they called them.
Till nine months later the finale came & the abnormal weight gain turned out to be a pregnancy of an isolated woman living under heavy surveillance.

Under hundred words #flashfiction.
