Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, the standard, and the prompt photo.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture below, which this week is supplied by the lady herself.
Click here to hear the author read his words:
My daddy is not evil.
He is really nice, he gives me presents, calls me his little pumpkin.
On television they say horrible things about him, that he is a butcher and a murderer.
That he does genocide.
I know this isn’t true.
I overheard him on the phone last night.
His voice sounded so tired, I wanted to hug him.
Because even then he was being kind.
I heard him say these words.
‘I told you to take care of them all, women and children too, every last one of them.’
So, you see, my daddy is nice, not evil.
