Mr Icken felt damp all over. To make up for it, his mouth was as dry as dust and his tongue was at least twice its normal size. He rubbed his hands on his thighs. It did not help. He licked his lips and mumbled his problem to the doctor.
‘I’m sorry Mr Icken,’ said the doctor, ‘I didn’t quite catch that.’
Mr Icken heaved a sigh. The doctor’s hands lay neatly folded on the table. Mr Icken looked at them as he tried again.
‘I said, I’m,’ he swallowed, ‘I’m turning into a chicken.’
These are the first couple of lines of ‘Mr Icken’, a humorous/absurd short story in eight pages. The whole story can now be bought in an e-book version on axio.dk for 12.50 dkk which is the same as 1.4 GBP or 2.2 USD.
It is a Danish site, but if you just follow the green buttons (“Læg i kurv”, “Gå til kurv”, “Fortsæt”) and fill in your billing information under “Ny kunde”=”New customer”, you should be all right.
Of course, you could also make google translate the entire page…
I would be very grateful for the donation

What would you do if you were turning into a chicken?
