A Story for Friday Fictioneers November 12th – ONCE

Thank you to Rochelle at http://www.rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com. She organises photo prompts and links for the Friday Fictioneers. This week’s photo was contributed by Dale Rogerson.

Participants write a piece of 100 word fiction, prose or poetry based on a photo prompt and exchange comments on each other’s work.  If you are a writer of short fiction, join in and let your imagination feed others with your stories. 

Once upon a time, I frolicked in snow and danced on ice skates.

Once I was agile and my body melted his heart.

Once I took chances and didn’t care about the consequences.

Once was all it took for her to extract revenge. A saw through a blade can do a lot of damage.

Now I sit at the window and watch as others play their dangerous games.

  1. Punishment that leaves a lasting legacy is the worst kind.

  2. That sounds like a truly evil revenge she’s imposed, I trust she reaped what she sowed.

  3. Yikes! I’m staying away from her, whoever she is …

  4. Had to go back and read it twice to make sure I understood. I was confused by the switches back and forth in speakers. Think I’ve got it now, and it seems to me he’s lucky to have escaped with his life.

  5. Chilling and thought provoking!

  6. Sounds like a freaky form of revenge. I hope that ‘she’ is locked up somewhere.

  7. Not the twist I was expecting. Very good!
