The Devil’s Cry

A bit late with this one. It’s official. My children believe that I live to clean, sweets have been re-classed as a breakfast food and communication only comes in the form of hitting each other with a fake, rubber horse head mask…(don’t ask!)

So please find my offering for this weeks Friday Fictioneers. If you’d like to have a go, pop onto Rochelle’s page and take a look at this weeks prompt, write a story in 100 words or less and press the blue frog to add your link. Good Luck!

Thanks to Piya Singh for this week's photo prompt.

Pieces of slate covered the ground like the scales of dragonhide. She pushed one aside. Black shone from amongst the undergrowth. Her eyes filled with tears.

The glass was smooth and still warm. She threw her head back and screamed.

A guttural rumble shook the earth. Pieces of volcanic glass flew upward, melding together, one by one till it hung in all its former glory.

She gazed into the mirror.

‘There you are.’ She smiled sweetly. ‘Just where I left you.’

His eyes widened. ‘How? No, not again.’

She laughed, a cruel, mocking sound. ‘I promised you forever, brother.’

    1. There is indeed, this has sparked further story 🙂 Thanks for commenting, I’ve been really lax lately and feel I should apologise for my absence of reading everyone else’s work.
      I don’t know how you manage to fit in FF while still writing a book. You’re an inspiration 🙂


      1. It’s a challenge sometimes. But FF is a passion of mine, too. I’ve met so many fascinating people and made some good friends through it. It is the reason I’m taking the next two months off from writing flash fiction and posting reruns. For many these will be new. I will confess to being more judicious about reading and commenting. For the most part I read most of the stories, but if someone CONSISTENTLY fails to comment on mine, I tend to ‘reciprocate’ in kind. The first year I made myself crazy trying to read and comment on all of them.

  1. A story full of menace and power. And I agree with Rochelle – there’s more story in there. Although I like a story that continues in the reader’s head after the written words are done.
