The Final Word

The Final Word

He ran into the forest, the shadows. Into the darkness. No one had seen him. He walked between the trees. It was done.

They had all laughed at him for so long. Hey thought they were better than him. Thought they were always right. Now they wanted to take what was his.

He came out of the forest, onto the dirt road going down to the village. He followed it the other way, up the hill.

A carriage came, a wagon with two horses. He jumped off the road, hid in the bushes. It was Mastersonโ€™s carriage. He was coming home from his field late today.

Alfred got back up on the road while he could still see him in a distance. He ran, ran until he was finally home.

Now all he had to do was wait. Wait until they all had drunk the water. Wait until they were all dead.

They would see who was right this time.

  1. A dark deed…
    I liked the last line- it shows more of his state of mind, as they’ll be dead and won’t care who was right. He’s too caught up in his revenge to see that far ahead.
    Nice one!

      1. Right?!!! Obviously don’t want to piss him off! Which could lead to a lot of really stupid jokes, but I’ll stop there. Ack! Sorry! ๐Ÿ˜‚ It looks like whatever he put in the water tank that is ooooozing out is far worse than my humor…thank goodness. Cheers!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. It is just a board in your school where our school is starting to execute some of the writings of children , so I asked them if we can execute some of the people outside India, as I really liked some of the poems in WordPress
