Friday Fictioneers: Plans

 

 

 

 

Plans

 

Writing was like her footsteps in the snow. You make your mark, they disappear, someone else makes their marks behind you. Erasing yours, showing life as it is now.

 

That was why on that cold night as she walked from the pub, she wondered why she had been so scared to say what she felt. To create stories of real life. Not safe. To leave the bubble of her own existence and be a writer. True writers wrote about everyone and everything, didn’t they?

 

That was plan until she walked out in front of that car. And died at the scene.

Friday Fictioneers: The Church

 

 

 

The Church

 

12-year-old Perry Kelly thought he might play hard man and take a few selfies inside ‘the Church that no one went to’ due to it’s reputation of ghostly Priests thinking it would be cool to show his school friends.

 

Inside it looked like any other Church. He laughed at the townsfolk.

He heard a noise and ran out the door vowing never to return.

 

Inside the Church a homeless man lit some candles for heat and wondered why a chill had came from outside. As far as he knew he was the only soul who entered here.

 

(Hope you all like my story this week. At the moment I have been so busy with my ECDL studies and with writing my book and I haven’t been keeping up with commenting on everyone’s else’s work which I apologise for and thank you all for your continued support, feedback and patience. I will catch up on all your stories as soon as I can. :-))

Tiger Roll Wins The Grand National. R.I.P. Up For Review

Image result for tiger roll

Tiger Roll became the first horse to win two consecutive English Grand Nationals since Red Rum’s same success in 1973 and 1974. The talented 9-year-old Meath horse was ridden to victory once again by Davy Russell, is trained by Gordon Elliott and owned by Michael O’Leery of Gigginstown stud. He went off as the 4/1 favourite for the race and didn’t disappoint many, many punters.

Tiger Roll faced stiff competition on the day from Magic Of Light who came second at 66/1 and Rathvinden in third at 8/1. Rounding off the top 6 was Walk In The Mill, Anibale Fly and One For Arthur.

Well done Tiger Roll and all concerned. 🙂

R.I.P. Up For Review

But the day was also filled with sadness when 10-year-old Up For Review suffered a fatal fall at the first fence and was put down. When I heard the news it broke my heart.

There was numerous debate in the run-up to the National about the unsafeness horses face in the National and in horse racing in general. And since the news of Up For Review’s passing, there has been further debate. At any other time I would say debate away to both sides but at this moment in time my thinking is different as there is a horse after losing his life and I think now is a time to mourn his loss instead of one side appearing to use his death to show how unsafe racing is and the other side speaking about Up For Review with that he’s ‘only a horse’ ugly attitude when that horse went out there to race for your entertainment.

I love you Up For Review, rest in peace sweetheart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Friday Fictioneers: Craving

Craving

She rushed from the cottage. Blood all over her clothes. His blood. It wasn’t that he was bad to her. He was what most normal people looked for. But from three,maybe four she had something in her. The urge to kill. A craving. A need. A want.

Light shone through the trees.

A police flashlight? To ruin the fun? Just the moon.

The moon shined down on her figure. Very everyday but ugly in the light. She laughed like a demon.

I’ve achieved something tonight. Forget normal. Forget compassion. The finger up to good. I have control and power.

Friday Fictioneers: The Circle of Thread

 

 

 

The Circle of Thread

Life is too short to not live in the moment, to not embrace those you love, to forget to laugh aplenty.

The thread we cling to is too thin to not feel enough, to feel superior, to forget to keep the ego balanced.

Life is too short to not say what you feel, to try to be liked at the sacrifice of your voice so talk, write, create aplenty.

Before the thread snaps live life your way. Unleash the shackles. Release the core of your heart. Your emotions are what make you human. Never be afraid of them.
