KL Caley is our host for the Thursday Write Photo challenge. You can find out more here.
Our photo is supplied by Sadje and her site is Keep It Alive, which is well worth a look.
The lake was quiet now, calm and tranquil with only the occasional ripple generated as a fish came to the surface after a tasty fly. The sky reflected a mirror image world, one where a new occupant was now residing, against their will of course.
Pat rowed the boat silently back to the shore having disposed of her rival. It had been so easy to lure Penelope to a picnic on the water. She had always been such a trusting idiot.
Pat tied the boat securely, then returned to her car, only to find a sodden Penelope waiting for her.
‘You forgot how long I can hold my breath underwater, you bitch!’
And with that she swung the wooden staff with all her might and broke Pat’s neck with the impact.
She tossed the log into the lake and headed for home.
Sisterly love, or lack of it, worked both ways.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour 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! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
