Flasher Fiction Friday - Opiate

Lisa whimpered as she sat up. She hurt everywhere, worse below the waist than above. They didn’t want to damage her pretty face after all.
Reaching over her head, she probed the tender knot on the back. As she did her hands brushed red flowers twined there. She ripped them out savagely, throwing them amid the others in the field.
How could he do this? How could her father let them take her like this? For another shipment of opium. She rose unsteadily and followed the broken stems to the mansion where they kept her.

One day, he would pay.

Yes, dark today. The others are hopefully less so. You can find more pieces of 100 words based on this same picture by going to the Flasher Fiction Friday blog.

  3. Well, I did not expect this from your imagination. Yes, very dark, but stimulating and an entirely different direction than one would expect from such a beautiful photo. The unexpected is what makes this work so well. There is a great story here, I'm sure, brewing in that beautiful head of yours. Revenge, ahhhh, what a dish. xo

  6. Omg! So full of emotion and powerfully dark and pain. My breathe was caught in my throat as I read this and my heart pounded. I hope one day she does get her revenge and break free from her prisoners. This needs to be kept going. Great flash!
