Friday Fictioneers: Do you like it?

This post was written for Friday Fictioneers. Today is also a Creature Feature day, so do check out that post as well if you have time. Also, this month’s Storybook Corner and Six on the Sixth linkups are still active if you’d like to have a go. I’d love to have you, dear minion. Just click through the links in menu at the top of this page for more information.

It’s hideous.

“You don’t like it, do you?”

“It’s not that.” Except it is.

Hands on her shoulders, he spoke. “I painted it for you.”

“I know. Thanks.” The corners of her mouth turned upward at his touch.

“But you don’t like it.” One hand crept into her hair.

“I’m sorry.”

“Me too.”

Her face smashed against the painting and the stone wall behind. Blood gushed from her nose, mixing with the sticky, wet paint. Her drink tumbled from her grasp and splashed across her bare toes. With fingers entwined in her hair, he pulled back for another go round.


Have you liked my facebook page (Adam Ickes – Author) yet? Go on, be a good little minion and give it a like. Don’t worry, I won’t bite. I can’t promise the same kindness from the characters in my stories though.

While you’re at it, you should follow me on the Twitter machine as well, immediately and henceforth: @AdamIckes
