SINS & WISHES


As usual I'm late, but I just came across this wonderful new flash fiction challenge on Sally's Scribbles, and I was inspired. I do hope you'll join the fun. Here is my entry, and yes, typical for me, murder came to mind. What can I say, my muse is pure evil!

This is a unique flash fiction challenge where we provide you with a new photo each week, and the first sentence of a story. Your challenge is to finish the story using 100-150 words, not including the sentence provided. Don’t forget to use the opening sentence… This challenge runs from Monday to Sunday! Get creative and have fun finishing the story!

Please include the photo with your bit of flash and a link back to this post. Do not forget to click on the blue link to add your link so that others can enjoy your story too! Now let’s have some fun!
 

SINS & WISHES
“Zeus was not having a good day and he made sure everyone knew it.”
Murder is a sin, but I do think about it. Then again, maybe I think about it too much, at least in regards to you. King of the castle, man of the house, ruler of his realm, you do strut your stuff.
 
They say our next life holds the reward for the sacrifices we make in this life. I married you, had my eyes wide open, but I can't justify the damage to our children if I left. So, you have no worries; you'll live a long and powerful life.
 
Still, the number of ways I kill you in my mind grows daily. My only hope is that karma plays a role and for each evil depiction  -  I lose one year of my future. Death will be my final blessing.

  8. http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/revenge-is-a-dish-best-served-cold.html

    That's the first thing that came to my mind. Because I think I had watched some cold case episodes (which were solved) just this afternoon.

    It is I, Jules from Cataloging Sheila - I have a 'B' account for ease of leaving comments.
    I'll also be sending an e-mail shortly - seems we could be neighbors.

    Thank you for your visit, kind words and interest - I use the word lists and prompts to dictate the story.

    1. She has a loving heart for not wanting to harm her children, but a vengeful and pragmatic one also, at least in my mind. :)

  12. Hey Yolanda,

    Zues has to realise he's never bigger than a women's mind that has thoughts of killing.
