Hi! So my fifth attempt at writing for FF. Every week. our gracious hostess Rochelle chooses a picture prompt, based on which we are to write a flash fiction of approximately 100 words, give or take a few. Its a fun challenge, and the community is full of nurturing and talented writers, so come join in at http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/  🙂

THE MURDER

 

The town’s social activist Annabelle Grace had been murdered in a gruesome fashion. She had been struck repeatedly on the head with the brass bell that had hung over the porch.

The police had found her seven year old daughter Isadora in a state of trauma. It was uncertain whether she would recover enough to speak about the murder.

To Isadora, it was all very simple. She loved candy but Mother scolded her everyday and kept the candy away.

The solution?

Silence Mother.

A smile crept into Isadora’s angelic features. Now she could have all the candy she wanted.
