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.
And this week the multi-talented lady provides her own photo as the prompt.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on this picture, below.
Click here to hear the writer read his words:
I gaze around the living room.
Toys litter the floor.
I move into the kitchen.
Cups and cereal bowls sit unwashed beside the sink.
I shake my head in disbelief.
My home is always spotless.
Something terrible has happened.
My perfect wife, my beautiful son, are gone.
But I’m pretty sure I know where they are.
I feel my anger rising.
No one, but no one, does this to me.
My fingers curl into fists.
Someone will suffer.
I am going to take revenge in the way I know best.
I grab the car keys, head for the women’s refuge.
