Walter took the stage to perform the deadliest feat of his career… The Wall of Water!
The audience gasped as he started to drown, but the ring of his bedside alarm saved him.
Yesterday I came across this story written last July. I was in the mountains and was not able to publish by the Trifextra deadline due to spotty internet. I was ticked, since I thought this was a good one. I decided to let it see the light of day and add to The Trifectra Writing Challenge, even thought it is a little late. Maybe they won’t notice it’s not following this week’s prompt.
The illustration is a still from the 1953 film ‘Houdini’, starring Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh.
JEALOUSY… In 33 Words
O Draug, you have done it again!
Dashed off another first place piece of writing.
The words spill effortlessly from your pen once again.
O Draug, you are starting to piss me off!
A Note to My Readers (Trifectians need no explanation):
One of the first works I read when I came to The Trifecta Writing Challenge was by Draug. After reading thousands of great writings by my fellow Trifectians and occasionally one by myself, it is still my favorite… Blast Off … have a read and see for yourself. But back to this post… each challenge, the first entry I read is always Draug’s. She is an excellent writer who continually trounces the opposition (us) in the writing challenges. I had no idea what to write this time, I always thought Apostrophe was just a punctuation mark, but when I read Draug’s piece… No, the Other Apostrophe … I knew what I would write. Yes, my entry would be using an Apostrophe Fueled by Jealousy… for her story this week takes a place next to Blast Off.
Here is this week’s Trifextra Challenge, and to see more fine 33 word stories… Click the Trike! This week we are taking you, once again, back to school for a lesson in literary devices. Remember the apostrophe? About.com defines apostrophe as, “A figure of speech in which some absent or nonexistent person or thing is addressed as if present and capable of understanding.” Give us your best 33-work example of an apostrophe.
Incidentally, for those Ethel and Cheryl fans out there… They made a guest appearance at Friday Fictioneers last week… Friday Fictioneers: GAME TIME … in case you would like to pay them a visit.
“Coffee, Tea or Me?”
Oh God, Renee’s in her stewardess mode again. She should know by now I don’t like to play “Fly Me to the Moon”.
“Come on, let’s get you undressed Mr. Grumpy-face”.
Ooh… watch it with the arm, bitch. Why can’t Jan do this? I hate Renee’s baths, she gets the water too cold, and leaves me sitting too long.
“Big day today, sweetheart. Do you want to wear the blue shirt or the tan one.”
Why does she always ask me? I don’t even remember what blue looks like.
“Okay then, the blue one.”
Big thanks to Rich Voza for taking this week’s Photo Prompt for the Friday Fictioneers 100 Word Flash Fiction.

100 Word Flash Fiction
One last lingering kiss.
A union forbidden by centuries old taboo. But, will love conquer all? We think not. See those eyes watching through the fronds?
It had been a glorious few days, despite their constant worry. They had been careful though, and true love had blossomed from lust. They hoped to unite, not only themselves but their people. It was time to return, and as he headed to the outrigger, he took one last look at her lithe figure disappearing into the palms to her family home.
The eyes followed her… it was many months before he heard the news.
Rochelle sent all The Fictioneers a beautiful photo that Renee Heath, at Rendezvous With Renee, took at her daughter’s wedding. It is such a beautiful wedding aisle, I wonder who or what will be walking down it today, after the Friday Fictioneers get their hands on it. They can be a blood thirsty lot. If you want to know more about 100 Word Flash Fiction and The Friday Fictioneers go see Rochelle and join in with your story. To see Renee and other’s stories go here…
Today’s the day. Going to pop another cherry. Almost getting hard thinking about it, I know I will be when I get there… that’s always the way it works.
Chancy, taking the risk… she may be watched. Doesn’t matter, someone else will get the honors, and I want to be first. I have a reputation to uphold, and you don’t get to be the master without a few risks.
This tunnel is the perfect place… dark and cool inside. No one to see.
The cans rattling in my backpack empower me… Carnelian my favorite.
“STOP… POLICE!” “I told you he’d come.”
Another Friday… another photo prompt… another stab at Fiction with Madison Woods and her friends… see their stories here.
