This is another in the series of flash fiction from Chuck Wendig’s site “Terrible Minds.” The theme this week was to write something about revenge. But only 100 words. This, too, is a true story. I can’t believe how hard I am hitting the keyboard right now. I want to scream. To find out the details and read more entries, go to his website:
Flash Fiction Challenge: 100 Words On The Subject of Revenge
I was lying in the gravel in a fetal position. John kicked me after he beat me down. “Fucking pussy.” Disgust in his voice.
Appeasement didn’t work. “I—I think you’re cool, man.” He punched me.
John had been gunning for me all summer. Taunting, ridiculing. Terrorizing our small, peaceful town. Now I was scared to go outside.
He stole my friend’s girlfriend and bullied everyone. We hated him. Instinctively, he found the weak one to take it out on.
Crying, bleeding and bruised, I was alone now. My friends left, embarrassed and scared.
I want to kill him.
