Follow

You told me to follow so I did.  Even when the path turned dark and I did unspeakable things.

Everyone assumed I had no choice but one was always there. I always choose the path less travelled.  It proves to be most interesting.

      Yes, she really is evil! Glad you liked it.

    • Janet said:

      Yes, maybe one day I’ll do that. Thanks for coming by.

    • Janet said:

      Glad you think so. I’ll be by soon.

    • Janet said:

      Thanks Sandra. The whole thing came to me in the shower this morning, like it was waiting to be written. Odd but I’m glad it worked.

    Interesting 🙂

  2. It begs the question, “WHAT DID SHE DO????” I am dying to know! Well not dying, but wondering! Great hook!

    • Janet said:

      Glad it hooked you in. There is a story there but I”m not ready to explore it yet. Very dark, perhaps even too dark.

      Glad you liked it. The voice is supposed to be a woman but it is not indicated in any way.

    Good night, what did they do? I’m thinking a number of horrendous things.

    • Janet said:

      Very horrendous. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.

    • Janet said:

      Thanks. I”m coming right over to read yours.

  5. Succinct and chilling. I want to know more about what she’s done and what her choices were — and what made her follow rather than choose to do otherwise — but I really liked how you stuck with the path allegory to bring it to “even when it turned dark and I did unspeakable things.” Nice job!

      Thanks Brian. I”m not sure if I will develop this more or not (that being said, I do know why she followed and did what she did – so who knows, maybe one day).

    A great story. As usual you manage to pack so much into so few words.
    I loved how you used the picture to highlight the idea of ‘paths’ that we choose to follow – obviously this lady likes the dangerous paths in life.

    Expected another poem but instead we got a clever, short vignette…packed in so few words. sense the character is female…and an evil doer. Leaves us wondering what she did and continues to do. Nice work. Find me on the list or here:
