Love this so much. Who hasn’t had a morning after the night before?

Touching and so beautiful –

The Elephant never disappoints. I haven’t linekd to him for a bit, because I didn’t want to play favourites –

If you want to know how this story started:

Vengeance 1

Vengeance 2

I have no idea where it is going, only that each week a little more unfolds in front of me.

I write because I have to. It is a compulsion. I do it to vent, to laugh and to remember. I blog because it has been so long since I had to write with a pen that my hand would go into cramp if I tried to write a journal.

  1. The silence cloak is by far your strongest line here, Victoria. I like the overlay on the prompt and the overall story line. The last line clunks for me, though, especially since the next-to-last line was good and strong.

    Thanks for the good read.


  2. Silence my cloak. I love this imagery. And the rain instead of tears. I used to love to cry in the pool while swimming laps. Oddly your piece evoked that feeling for me. And I quite like the tension of the standoff at the end.

  3. Lovely writing as always, darling — Methinks you should take some time and think this story out; give yourself somewhere to go with it — I know I’d love to read the whole tale, rather than just eat it a bite at a time.

  4. You have an absolutely wonderful way with imagery, and I love how you put the words on top of the picture—it gives it an extra kind of power. You evoke a lot of emotion as well. I read the previous Vengeance installments and now I’m hooked!
