So it’s Wednesday again and time for my weekly fix for ‘Friday Fictioneers’. A 100 word piece of fiction based on an ever changing photo prompt. I really can’t recommend it enough, get yourselves over and give it a go, read the others and join in.
The morning dew glistened across the fence, tiny shards of diamonds that sparkled in the sunrise. The putrid stench of pitch and smoke still hung in the air, waiting, watching, too frightened to leave, in case last night was forgotten.

The screams of the burning, the maimed and the dying now echoed in the breeze and she vowed to carry those voices to the ends of the earth.
Revenge would not be silent.
