Friday Fictioneers: Life Goes On For Some



I apologise because this is a bit dark for the new year. But this is from a novel I will be writing sometime in the future and when I seen the image it was what came to mind. But all that aside I hope you all find it an interesting read and I wish you and all your loved ones a happy and a safe New Year.

Life Goes On For Some


The creature knew nothing.


Of the horror of the death in front of him. A row over drugs. Not planned. Did that matter? A life gone anyway.

The party boy kills the drug dealer who won’t give him more drugs. But was it ok that he was a drug dealer that died? Brother crying because he seen past that.

Sure they put the killer in. He was all charisma and charm. Aren’t most psychopaths? Debunking the theory of the lonely guy in the basement. Debunking is fruitless when a person is dead.

But sure they let him out. Not surprising.

    The “creature” I guess is the goat, but it sounds more sinister

  2. Dear Lisa,

    Your Jim Jones’s of the world are psychopaths and are quite charming and charismatic. Spot on.

    Shalom and Happy New Year,


  3. Dale says:

    More often than not they are charismatic…

  4. Charming they are (at least before they show what’s behind the mask)

  5. subroto says:

    Evil under a mask, a slick portrait of a charming killer.

  6. plaridel says:

    looks can be deceiving indeed. when you find it out, sometimes it’s too late and the damage has been done.

  7. draliman says:

    A grim scene. Always look out for the charming ones with the dangerous glint in their eye.

  8. Having a goat there is quite appropriate for life in that world, since in western culture goats have always been in cahoots with the forces of evil. This is such a good tale about all.consuming nature of drugs and deceit

  9. Lynn Love says:

    A stain on this tranquil spot and all for a hit, a passing period of forgetful pleasure. Sad and truthful

  10. The “party boy” has connections. Guys like that always get off without more than a slap on the wrist.

  11. Haven’t met a psychopath, so can’t answer that. But is it OK if a drug dealer dies – well, that’s debatable, because he has a family too. Liked the way you have put forth questions that many think but never say out loud.

    Oooo interesting. Charmingly evil
