"TRAM" Micro-Story☟

Whilst investigating the death of a local knife sharpener, a witty strongman named Bruno Tram uncovers a legend about a supernaturally-cursed, sharp knife circulating throughout Circus Town. As soon as anyone uses the knife, he or she has exactly 333 days left to live.

The doomed few appear to be ordinary people during day to day life, but when photographed, they look telepathic. A marked person feels like a deceptive naked mole-rat to touch.

Bruno gets hold of the knife, refusing to believe the superstition. A collage of images flash into his mind: an evil monkey balancing on a murderous knife sharpener, an old newspaper headline about an enraged accident, a drugged cat ranting about his head and a drinking well located near a circus tent.

When Bruno notices his arms have alligator-like properties, he realizes that the curse of the sharp knife is true and calls in his lover, a showgirl called Mable Eddleton, to help.

Mable examines the knife and willingly submits herself to the curse. She finds that the same visions flash before her eyes. She finds the evil monkey balancing on a murderous knife sharpener particularly chilling. She joins the queue for a supernatural death.

Bruno and Mable pursue a quest to uncover the meaning of the visions, starting with a search for the hooded cat. Will they be able to stop the curse before their time is up?
