Five Sentence Fiction – Faerie
Written for Lillie McFerrin’s Five Sentence Fiction challenge. The theme for that week was, “Faerie”.
Rogen slipped out of his shirt to reveal an intricate tattoo which glowed bright red in the candlelight.
Daragh stood in the doorway and did not watch as Cait laid her lovely hands on Rogen’s chest and then disappeared into his body in a wisp of bright red smoke.
“Do not be sad, dear brother,” sneered Rogen, “for she was lost to you the moment she set eyes upon me.”
Daragh walked out of the house without a word and did not look back when his brother began to scream.
He found a comfortable-looking stump and sat down to wait for Cait to return to him from his dead brother’s house.
