Friday Fictioneers 7/6 – via Madison Woods

“Outside Pecos” Photo by Amanda Gray

He had walked for miles since dawn to clear his mind, or perhaps not to clear it as much as to focus on his latest blunder and what had to be done to correct the situation he was in with his best friends’ wife.

Rosa, a devoted wife with tempting lips and rhythmic hips, suffered years of brutal beatings until one night when she came to him seeking comfort.

As he neared Rosa’s house with handgun loaded, safety released, he was certain of his profound love for his Latin Rose and knew he could and would kill the bastard for her.

  1. Ooo, interesting! I almost think the first sentence should be two separate ones. Maybe not though. Either way, something is about to go down!

  2. Ooooh I smell trouble in the air…mine will be up later today. Well done on this

  3. the bones could rest out there for 100 years undisturbed

  4. Well done, made me want more!

  5. A good tale.
    A lot of tension brewing in your 101 words.

  6. I love the sense of the dramatic you have added to this – the tension is wonderfully drawn and it made me wonder if he had always known his friend was a wife beater or not. I also want to know why she picked him to go to.

    The only change I might make if it were me would be to swap the middle paragraph around as I’m not sure you need her name in there at all, but it’s pretty minor. Well done.

    I’m on the list but for those who happen across, my offering is also here: http://womanontheedgeofreality.com/2012/07/06/reality-brought-forth/

  7. I can hear Marty Robbins singing now…

    A very good story. I loved the rhythmic hips…and so did he, I guess. Well done.

    Aloha,

    Doug

  8. “… tempting lips and rhythmic hips…” nice rhyme.
    I suppose he did too much comforting that night. See where it’s gotten him.

  9. I too heard the strum of a guitar as I read your piece. Well done.

  10. we need some good cowboy music to go with it. thanks

  11. Dick I hear the cock of a trigger here?
    Nice work!
