#FF — Promise Fulfilled

PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson

It rested under a snowbank in a quiet subdivision all Winter. April’s sun brought it, along with Spring, slowly into view. Wet pavestones gleamed support for the motion. Even its blue shadow seemed to be smiling.

At midday, a checkered cab pulled up to the curb. Two small, booted feet stepped out of the back seat and crunched careful steps through the grimy snow until turning in front of it. A diminutive wool-coated figure sat with a satisfying thump, then smiled.

I knew you’d be right here. I promised I’d be back.”

Her plot for revenge would soon commence.

  6. That’s definitely some twist at the end, Lisa. I guess your poem is about more than spring finally beating winter and snow with sun and milder temperatures!

    Your description of the vengeance-seeker’s arrival is very good, and the twist at the end is startling. Personally I feel your story would have been even better if you’d hinted at the object of her quest for revenge.

  19. It felt ominous as the two exchanged words.
    A bit of a mobster feel. Now, I want to know what was the readon for the meeting.
    Mmmm … loved it.

    I can only echo everybody else’s yikes and wows. I was entranced by the lead-in’s beautiful imagery and feeling, then whacked on the head by the last line. I’ll join the crowd of eager readers anxious for a sequel.
