Woman scorned no more

woman no longer scorned by chris hall lunasonline

She holds the golden sphere in the palm of her hand. It glows, warm with all that remains of him. She has him now, resting in the palm of her hand. His soul, trapped. He in her power; not she in his.

Revenge is sweet, she thinks.

She curls her fingers and feels the sphere pulsate. She turns and walks the few steps to the bridge. Leaning on the rail, she watches the greasy, grey river flow beneath her.

She tosses the sphere in the air and catches it. Tosses again; lets it fall.

Goodbye traitorous heart, she whispers.

  1. I think it’s cool that people put writing prompts out there and I enjoy seeing what you come up with for them. One of my favorite things to do in school was when the teacher would give us a picture and tell us to write about it. 😀

    • I’ve always enjoyed writing prompts. When we had our little writing group here we had a photo prompt each week. It was fascinating to see what we all made of them. Everyone was different. 🙂
