Another Wednesday, another prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, graciously provided by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
The task is to write a story: beginning, middle, and end, in 100 words or less. You can find all the Fictioneers’ stories when you click on the Froggy. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.
This time I’ve been experimenting outside my comfort zone again.
Reflective symmetry lies at the heart of our universe. Matter, energy, order—each has a counterpart. The symmetry must be maintained. This is my art, my calling.
You fear the darkness, I fear the light.
My knife carves deeply and your tears set me aflame.
At last, your screams fade into silence. My ecstasy provides a sound.
I drink your blood, erupt with energy; your lifeless shell a gift for chaos.
