Friday Fictioneers – Bridging The Gap

Every week, the wonderful Rochelle gives us a prompt to write a piece of fiction, poetry or something of that ilk in just 100 words. It is a challenge and a lot harder than it seems when you have to cut words and rearrange so that the story still makes sense.

If you think you are up for the challenge, then head over to FRIDAY FICTIONEERS and see have a gander.

Running away was never an option. He would find her anywhere. She tried before, and her friend ended up dead. Somehow, he always knew where she was, sometimes arriving before her.

He told her they needed to bridge the gap in their relationship. His way of bridging the gap was to tie her to the radiator when he went out. This time, she knew it would be over. He would not chase her any more. He wouldn’t abuse her.

The smell of gas was overpowering. As he opened the door, the match attached to the bottom rubbed across the strike.

    • Haha I like that. As I said to Sandra, she would have had to escape from the radiator to put the match and the strike down, so hopefully she would have climbed out of a window and closed it behind her.

  1. I’m going to assume she wasn’t there. She must have been the one to set the trap so she was able to get away. There… I love a happy ending. 🙂
