Photo prompt #writephoto – pale

writephoto logoAnother interesting photo prompt from Sue over at Daily Echo this week.
This is my contribution.

photoprompt 16 juneThe flesh had been stripped from their bones and this was all that was left.
They lay bleached in the sunlight, a warning to all who passed that misconduct or non conformity would not go unpunished.
As living beings, they had huddled together in the hope of not being discovered in their hiding place, but a treacherous sycophantic friend had betrayed them, leading to their execution on the spot as they cowered in terror.
For his part, his life too had been extinguished, but for him another place and another warning as treachery of any kind was not tolerated.

A work of fiction in response to this week’s photo prompt.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  4. Lovely, if grim, tale of bones found on the beach. What a mind must have dreamt that story, love to you and all those you hold dear.
