Friday Flash: Deferred Promises

This idea just came to me.

The white stag raced across the muddy, churned-up meadow, shimmered and disappeared.

Fucking fae.

Fury swept through Hammer. He fisted his hands, wanting to hit something. Preferably the fae. The stupid lying fae – how could he be so stupid?

He knew they lied. Knew he shouldn’t believe the stag’s sweet words.

Hammer turned, slammed his fist into the tree behind him. Pain sang up his arm. He welcomed it, welcomed the splinters. Anything to take his mind off the stag’s betrayal.

He smashed his fist into the tree again. Heard something crack. He looked up and something silver fell to the ground in front of him. A ring.

He bent and picked it up. The words I am sorry were etched around the band.

  1. I enjoyed this – it was full of frustration. I aparticularly liked the line “pain sang up his arm”. You might want to consider using “preferably” to ” preferable”.

    Interesting take on the prompt. Ouch…I hurt for him, hurting himself Didn’t expect the delightful, surprise ending. Nice work. Thank you for visiting my story.

    I enjoyed that story Sonia, always love stories to do with fairies, mythological creatures. You captured the angst of Hammer very nicely. There’s a typo with silver/sliver although at first sliver seemed to work too.

  5. Another example of I opened a tab and forgot about it. I just found this trying to clean out the 200+ tabs I have open right now.

    Great writing, I am sad I missed being on time to read this one. This is another good example of how with few words you leave all of us dying to hear more about it. >.<

Say something. Go on.
