Friday Fictioneers: A Bloody House

Every week, Rochelle posts a donated photo so we can create a story of around 100 words with the photo as a prompt. If you want to have a go, then head to Rochelle’s page


and if you want to take a look at what others have written, then take a look through the little froggy here:



Myles Bence looked around the house. He knew who lived here, and the mess showed that it was doubtful he survived. The blood across the walls looked like something exploded. Claw marks in the benches gave Bence the impression that a huge animal had been the cause. A voice from another room called to him “Bence, you need to come see this”. The police Sergeant walked through the door and found the remains of two bodies. Someone had piled all the pieces together. He recognised the heads of the victims.

“It’s Zeke and the Shaman,” he said gravely.


I forgot to put the link in to the complete story, but the usual readers of this will know what has happened. For those who aren’t, then I have split part of the story off to make more readable. You can find the complete story in its entirety


or on Jules’ page


and you can  find the side story

  2. Yipes! This was a great stand alone story … scary as the dickens, one can’t help but wonder what sort of creature created such havoc.

  3. Funny thing here Al — despite this post/prompt response being part of a larger story unfolding, it does stand on its own —-just as it is – without any other need for references.

    So, be it what it is – it serves many purposes, on different levels.

    Highly creative in simplicity – if taken for a straightforwards response to the photo prompt. 🙂

    • Thanks Pat. There was so much more I wanted to write with this, but 100 words never seems enough. It’s one of the reasons my own weekly prompt has 200 words. More can be said or done.

      • Yup — 100 words is economical. Tight as hell – er heck — but it forces one to choose very carefully.

        And yeah, I appreciate the 200 word count of your challenges- and as they say, variety is the spice of life. 🙂
