Flash fic – Blood and Mud

I guess there’s too many heat waves and droughts on my mind. Content warning – mentions of murder, drugs, blood. And based on one of the pictures from here –https://terribleminds.com/ramble/2022/08/12/flash-fiction-challenge-the-revenge-of-the-insane-art-robot/ (It’s the last picture, if you didn’t guess.)

Amy’s Free Range Tea Shop sounded exactly like twee bullshit...
