Brooding under the Moon – Flash Fiction (100 Words) – August 9, 2015

PHOTO PROMPT -© Madison Woods


Brooding under the tenuous moon, the wicked witch sat reflecting about her current lover, who of course didn’t really appreciate her genius, the wimp. She’d dump him.

Though beautiful, her heart was a black hole. Everything and everyone that came too near, got sucked up, transformed and spit out as an appendence of herself.  She avoided mirrors. Like Dorian Grey’s portrait they showed her the dissipation caused by her wickedness. Strangely, she was woman enough to wonder why no one really loved her.

A cat spied her sitting on a park bench. It saw her aura, so prudently slipped away.

This post is written for Friday Fictioneers and I’m submitting it to Tale Weaver as well, as it speaks of a “wicked witch” of sorts.

  1. I like it, interesting take on the prompt. Looks like she is a bit too full of herself. I really like the black hole inside sucking everything and everyone in.


  2. Really excellent job Georgia! Love the imagery conjured as well as the various references to things like Dorian Grey, the cat – a traditional witch’s familiar – etc. And so brilliantly written with a clarity and precision wonderful – an inspired 100 flash! 😀
