SJ Maylee Week 63: A Punishment

Picture 1

Picture 2

SJ Maylee’s’ Choice: 2

Title: A Punishment

Waves crashed all around him, but Jonathon felt nothing. He was frozen through with the emptiness breaking apart his heart. Once again the fates had stolen his life.

No longer would he accept where they threw him. No longer would he accept these punishments. No longer would he accept the sentence of his kind.

He had to get back to his Roxanne.

He prayed that she’d wait and hold tight to his last words. It would take everything in him, but he’d get back to their bench. He’d get back to her.

They must have sensed he was about to tell her the story. A story of fiction turned to bitter reality each time the fates chose to punish his kind. However, this time their punishment touched Roxanne as well.

She would be their undoing. He had to believe it would be true.

  1. Such an emotional read!

  2. Thank you. I'll make it up to him ... eventually. ;)

  3. Darkness and sadness exudes from your flash. I loved it though. Such strong images come through your words combined with the picture.

    1. Hi, Pablo! Thank you. :) I'm so glad you're doing Daily Picspiration now.

      This flash is the third in the series so far. I'm telling the story backwards actually. I'll be sharing more of Jonathon and Roxanne's story in my next flash here.
