Revenge is Sweet – Friday Fictioneers

Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, and the standard.
Today’s somewhat macabre photo by Liz Young is perfect for allowing me to express my thoughts.
I have recently been the victim of what I believe to be somewhat unfair attacks by two ladies I had previously considered friends.
They are about to discover that no one has sharper teeth than Sound Bite Fiction.
Bwahahaa!
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture, below.

Click here to hear me read this tale of terror: Revenge is Sweet

The two imprisoned ladies stare balefully at each other.
We shouldn’t have teased him, says the purple-haired pygmy.
It’s all my falut (sic), replies the poutine-bespattered Canuck.
A handsome rogue enters.
He is even more gorgeous than his interview photograph, the pair agree.
Until he speaks.
Hoots mon, he says, it’s a braw bricht moonlicht nicht the nicht.
The ladies scream in terror.
Aye, lassies, he mutters in his almost unintelligible brogue, it’s the death of a thousand Scots words fur ye.
Anything but that, they shriek in unison.
Anything, he grins, questioningly.
The two captives confer briefly.
Then they smile at him.

About ceayr

A Scot who has discovered Paradise in a small town he calls Medville on the Côte d'Azur, C.E. Ayr has spent a large part of his life in the West of Scotland and a large part elsewhere. His first job was selling programmes at his local football club and he has since tried 73 other career paths, the longest being in IT, with varying degrees of success. He is somewhat nomadic, fairly irresponsible and, according to his darling daughter, a bit random.

  1. I like to believe I’m smart enough to stay well clear of this, but clearly missing one week at FF is missing a lot more than a photo prompt! I’ll have to dig back and see what this is all about! Admittedly, I anticipated something darker from you this week, CE, but this was an amusingly witty surprise! Woe be to the lass who’s your muse. 😉

    Well done, C.E. Those two had it coming.

    Unfortunately, I sense retaliation in the near future from the Purple-Obsessed Pygmy and the Conniving Canuck (or ten-thumbed typist).

    Poutine-bespattered Canuck? I may have a typo here and there (mostly for your benefit) but please, my dining etiquette is nae so bad!
    You’ve got the story all wrong darlin’… a Scottish brogue is way too sexy to shriek at (even if we don’t understand a damn word…)

    Well done.
    In many cases, you find people tend to self-destruct and no revenge is required. That said, my nasty next door neighbour is still at large. Indeed, I can’t help wondering at times whether karma knocked on the wrong door and turned up at our place instead.

    Revenge is sweet – and no doubt horrible too! Will it be plank walking or death by haggis? Great fun, C and a fitting riposte 🙂
