Sunday Photo Fiction: Water Torture

Every week a photo is used as a prompt for a story using around 200 words. If you want to have a go, head over to Sunday Photo Fiction and take a look at all the details. If you want to see what others have written, then head to the InLinkz link up page and click on any of the images there to read one of the stories.

My story is part of an ongoing story on an alien planet called Vakaria with the main character called Dan. They are a tripedal, three eyed, four armed race, and they live together in somewhat harmony although after the people from Earth invaded Vakaria more than five hundred years before, but some rebelled against the invasion. The invaders were referred to as Earthers, and the sympathizers were called Humans.

If you want to read the invasion story, then read Daniel’s Story.

If you want to read this story so far, then read Daniel’s Legacy.

Dan sat with his feet dangling in the water. Swinging his legs, he watched the ripples expand ever outward until they disappeared. He wiped a tear from his eye at the thought that he would never bring the killer to justice. When he looked through the reports of serial killers, he found an image of a similar killer from seven centuries earlier on Earth. The killer’s face could have been a clone of someone he met recently. CS … Cigar Smoker. When he spoke to her unit and asked her name, the last name they gave him matched that of the serial killer in human history.

Now, he knew the twisted mess in the wrecked elevator, escaped justice and Dahlia could never have closure. He knew her heart would be broken, not only for the fact that Zoe Keegan would never face trial for her crimes, but that she walked, talked and worked with the monster that killed her father.

Dan stamped a foot in the water and watched as the ripples folded over each other, hiding some ripples and causing others to be become more pronounced. He stopped kicking water and groaned as he realised he had been played.

  1. You have to feel for poor Daniel. He’s been through so much. He’s probably wondering when it will all end — when will he get a chance to rest. I’m really enjoying this ongoing story 🙂

    • Thanks Lyn. Its hard to know when to end it, and how to. With Daniel, the first one, I did the final one as a history lesson five hundred years in the future. This one will have to be a proper ending though
