Sunday Photo Fiction: Truth Behind The Lies

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.

Truth Behind The Lies

Dan found Dahlia at the church, speaking to the priest. Every time he saw the man of the gods, Dan thought about how he saved him from the torture, but the loss of his hand would always be a stark reminder. He folded one pair of arms to hide the replacement.

He watched Dahlia throwing a ball in the air as she spoke to the priest, and judging by the rate that she threw the ball, was becoming more and more agitated. As he closed on them, Dahlia threw the ball screaming, and it hit the wall with such force, it exploded with a bang and fell to the floor.

When Dan reached the two, he gently placed one of his hands on Dahlia’s shoulder. “I have some good news and some bad news for you, Dahlia. The good news is, I found out who the killer is. The bad news is, she fell in the elevator”. Dahlia took an involuntary step back, and ran her upper left hand through her hair, “but she’s dead! What hope do we have now? There will be no…”

“She’s not dead” Dan interrupted her. “She faked it.”

  1. I thought it was too good to be true — far to easy. So, CS can still be brought to justice. I’m all in favour of that — especially if Dahlia or Daniel are dispensing the justice 😉
