Friday Fictioneers — Threat or Intention?

Genre: Realistic Fiction
Word count: 100


Dear B,

This time, you’ve cheesed me off to the point of no return. You’ve stolen a chunk of my life, then upped sticks and left me to clear up the mess.

Well, here’s my plan. I’m going to flatten you, squeeze that last drop of life-blood from your veins, like tomato paste from a tube. For years you’ve treated me as a piece of furniture, an unpaid servant and plaything of no consequence. You promised me the world, but deprived me of the yeast to expand my horizons.

See this marble rolling pin.  

You’re dead.

Amen to that,

  2. Dear Sarah,

    That certainly is a pizza of a different sort. Deliciously rolled out, cooked up and served. Brilliant piece.

    • Dear Rochelle,
      Thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed my pizza. I actually wrote this “letter” on the back of an envelope while eating my breakfast this morning. It’s interesting when and how inspiration strikes!
      All best wishes,

    I’ve come to look forward to these little exercises. Thank you for sharing and Happy Thursday to you. I have more death and destruction to write about, so must run! 🙂

  8. Marble rolling pin – that’s serious business. Haaa. “Cheesed me off” is a phrase that I think I’m going to have to use in the future. 😀

    • Is “cheesed off” yet another one of my Brit phrases? As for the marble rolling pin — it’s amazing how a writer’s kitchen implements can crop up in a story. I do own a marble rolling pin, but prefer to use my wooden one, as it’s less scary!


  9. Oh! I fear that making M mad is a VERY bad idea. Beautifully done.
