Severed Love: A Friday Fictioneers Tale

Friday Fictioneers 10-22

“I just don’t love you anymore,” he said, as the beaded sweat evaporated from our bare bodies.

My heart raced at his words, just as it had at his touch. I felt damaged, manipulated, outraged.

I watched him casually dress. His face wore a look of relief; his brunette burden finally lifted.

“What now?” I asked, feigning indifference.

“Not sure. Maybe travel a while and get my head straight.”

A man of his word, his arms traveled downriver. The rest of him traveled to the place where we first met. I ensured his head was straight with an unobstructed view.

This disturbing piece of prose was written for Friday Fictioneers photo prompt. The challenge was to write a 100-word story based on the photo. As always, thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting this challenge. You can check out the other stories and poems here.

    • Thanks, Janna! There’s nothing wrong with you. I didn’t write it as humor, but it is funny. I think there might be something wrong with me. I have a penchant for gruesome stories of jilted women who take revenge on their lovers.

  1. Lisa, very chilling and well written. I love the lead in to that final paragraph: the distant lover, the callous disregard of their relationship… the final lines take it somewhere else, and change my sympathies. But that makes for a good story. 😉

Let's talk about your feelings.
