THE BOOK OF PROVERBS SAYS SLEEP WITH ANOTHER MAN’S WIFE AND YOU’LL LIKELY GET SOMETHING LIKE AN DEADLY ARROW IN YOUR KIDNEYS…NOT EASY TO EDIT SOMETHING DOWN INTO 100 WORDS—GOOD EDITING!
This is a little throw back to my fiction roots. A short story originally, written in 2016, I now converted it into 100 words.
The Sorcerer’s Wife
Our writhing bodies glistened with perspiration when he stormed in.
Most betrayed husbands would savagely behead the passionate lovers. Not the evil Sorcerer, he denied me the most exquisite finale of all; death in her loving arms.
He tossed a mystic powder. A purple dust cloud transformed Isabella into a doe.
Next, the Sorcerer converted me into the most loathsome predator; the hyena.
Now, I watch her grazing in the ominous forest; moving with a familiar grace.
For years I coveted beautiful Isabella.
Oh, the bittersweet irony.
As foul spittle drips from my hungry fangs, I crave her even more.
