On Friday everything changed. I was no longer the little girl my father adored. I was a bargaining chip, a promise for a deal.
My view of this world had finally been unveiled, reveling many shades of greed.
I looked at the man smiling in front of me. I could see his plans written in the corners of his mouth, reflected in the dark chocolate windows to his rotting soul.
As I said my vows in the room of silent witnesses, I made a secret one of my own.
One day I would kill this man, setting free the world.
This is the second (read first one here) story I submitted for the Flashverary contest over at Flash! Friday.
Our story requirements:
Must be exactly 100 words
Must start with “On Friday everything changed“
Writing Challenge: Story in a Haiku
A challenge from Summit Abrams. “Take the challenge, write a story in a haiku. Can you do it?”
They were all surprised
When the quiet kid rose up
Bitter sweet revenge
So last night, or this morning rather, when I was woken up by one of my littles and couldn’t get back to sleep, I came across Three Line Thursday. Yesterday’s prompt was so intriguing, and since I couldn’t sleep, I decided to come up with something. To my disappointment, however, I missed the dead line. For this challenge we were given a photo prompt and were to write something about it in three lines with the max of 10 words per line. As a special challenge we were not allowed to use the words Fire, Burn, or Flame.
With slanderous words
Spreading, ever furious
She got her revenge
