Mindfully Aware (Friday Fictioneers)













I was perusing a friend of mine's blog and ran across a prompt that inspired me. The group goes by the name the "Friday Fictioneers" and they have a Facebook page if you would like to visit them to find out more about their 100 word Friday Fiction prompts. 


The prompt is initiated by an image, which is a wonderful kick in the brain cells for this writer, as I am inclined to create stories from images without a reason, this one in particular is a sculpture, done by a woman I had yet to meet. Claire Fuller, who provided us with this beautiful piece to write about.

(Fiction)

Even before his body cooled and became stiff, the stillness became noise inside her head. Months went by, the trail was cold. Nobody would blame her if they knew, but he did.


She could feel his presence, always there, in the back of her mind. It was like he had become a part of her in ways she could not explain to the rest of the world. 


"…and the two became one." echoed in her head. 


She made the choice to end his life, to escape him, but instead it bonded him to her forever.

  7. Always nice to have a new talent join the group, although it's taking longer and longer to enjoy all the stories properly! :-) I like the idea that his death haunts her. I hope that would be the case for murderers everywhere!

    1. Thank you Janet,

      I understand the taking time to read everyone (and respond), though it can be an inspiring journey too. I had so many I was involved with at one time, that it became a chore and took me away from my other writing. This time, I will pace myself ;-)

      k~

  8. Nice to meet you! And welcome to Friday Fictioneers. I loved this story - a true vision of the murderess not being able to get the victim off her mind. Really nicely written.

    1. Hello Claire,
      It is nice to meet you too. I love the sculpture you offered up for our inspiration this week. It speaks to me. I am glad that the results of that inspiration were something you enjoyed. It is interesting to see where the art takes each writer, and I can imagine from your perspective it is intriguing to say the least. I wonder if it alters your muse as you are sculpting.

      k~
