Behind The Flicking Lamps- Friday Fictioneers 3/29


After been MIA for a few weeks, I am back this week for another Friday Fictioneer per Rochelle. This week’s image is also courtesy of her.

I came up with a short story that might be a tad vague or doesn’t say much…and yet somehow it does…please feel free to comment and offer constructive criticisms. As always join in the fun. THANK YOU ALWAYS AND HAVE A GREAT EASTER.

The kitchen remained just as it had been that tragic night…frozen in time, December 27th 2008 to be precise. Everything else moved on with life’s unpredictable pace, everything but this room.

Dimly lit and seemingly innocent, Sarah- Jane and her sisters made sure the room was secluded, and undisturbed…it took threats, screams, yells, and protests but they got their wish…no one dared look in the room let alone enter it. It was under preservation they said; just as their mother had wished it to be in her will…just as she had wanted it to be after that night…

A deadly and untold secret perfectly masked behind the roomโ€™s flicking lamps…

  1. Glad you’re back, Boomie – and I definitely don’t think this is too vague. I feel like the actions of the sisters keep it grounded, and even though there’s a pretty deep mystery about what happened and why the room needs to be preserved, we at least feel like it’s something that could be explained if we read on. Nice job!

  2. Great to see you, Boomie! I’ve been doing the same thing, sort of.

    Nice story! Has some potential for a bigger one, I agree with Rochelle.
    Great seeing you again!

    • Great seeing you as well. Life’s gotten so busy lately, but I am going to try really hard to keep up with my writing and Friday Fictineer.

      Thanks so much for stopping by and I am so sorry about the late response.

    • Thanks so much. I think I do better with short stories…I fear if I wrote long stories I will go off track or get all the grammar tied in knots lol.

      Thanks a lot

  3. HiBoomie…I just left a comment but don’t see it so will repeat. First of all, Welcome back. Hope you had a nice Easter. I see a mystery/thriller in the making here…and would love to know more.

    • Thank you so much. I think the see the other message. Yes, I had a nice Easter, quiet but too short lol.

      Thanks always, I hope you are having a great week
