I have not done any online fiction writing in a long while. I do love to participate in Friday Fictioneers, and I dropped in this morning to see what I have been missing. This is a 100 word piece of writing done in response to a picture. I had no intention of writing, but when I saw the picture, a whole scene popped into my mind just like that! While Rochelle herself saw a gentle scene, my own creative effort was tinged with some violence. I guess that is because I am reading Wildwood Boys about the ruffians along the Kansas-Missouri border during the Bleeding Kansas days. It is great writing, by the way.
Speaking of writing, Rochelle does great writing herself. Her book of short stories is a fantastic read. To check out her Friday Fictioneers go here: http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com My story is 96 words.
Revenge Is Sharp
Bell, short for Bellingham, was eating with his family at the Bamboo Garden. His parents listened to his sisters’s chatter. Bell was hearing only voices from lunch rattle in his head like marbles in a metal tin.
“Hey, Ding Dong, ya eatin’ that cake?” He watched as they poked straws full of sucked up milk into dessert on his lunch tray. The cake collapsed to mush, the boys laughed drawing attention from other tables. Bell wanted to fade away.
Bell fingered the unopened chopsticks and slipped them in his pocket thinking of tomorrow’s lunch at school.
