Flash Fiction, Friday Fictioneers - I Hesitate

Flash Fiction, Friday Fictioneers - I Hesitate

I stood looking down from the top of the terrace of Hamilton Towers into the dark depths below. I asked myself, "Was it worth it?" I shrugged. I had to act before my courage failed me. I looked around. The lights from the towers of the buildings nearby hit my eye. 

I averted my eyes and looked down again. No, the darkness was preferable. Kathy would like it that way. She loved darkness. With a sigh I shoved the sack with Kathy's unconscious body into the empty space, rang Sophie and said, "She's gone Sophie, We can marry now."

  1. Another chilling tale, Jai. Are you going to tell us who Kathy and Sophie are? They seem to appear in your tales often ;)

    1. Well, they will be permanent fixtures in my tales. Two people in my mind. No connection to anyone living but very much there in my imagination.

  2. Oh my goodness, I thought I was reading about a suicide, and then you turned the story on its head. Very chilling! Well done.

  6. Were I Sophie, I wouldn't want him any more... Who knows if he chooses someone else and does to her what he did to Kathy?

    Welcome to FF!
