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.
This week’s photo prompt, obviously an old shot of the Jolly Green Giant, is by the delightful Connie Gayer.
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:
Where is her body?
They ask me that a thousand times.
I tell them again the hole is for a cherry tree.
She went to buy it.
She did not come back.
Instead the police arrived.
They got an anonymous call about a domestic disturbance.
Not for the first time.
We have come to blows before, I admit.
They found her blood on an axe in the bedroom.
They know I have a history of violence.
They know I have a mistress.
They don’t even need a body.
I am going to prison.
She is much smarter than I thought.
