Friday Fictioneers – 2013-11-08

Friday Fictioneers is a writing challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields – the challenge: write a story in 100 words, based on an image.

Dust Made Stone.

Some say the old gods died long ago.  Some, they say, were reborn with different names, only to die again.

Hermes became Mercury, Eros became Cupid only to be lost again in time.  I have heard it all before, more than I care.

Most of their statues are reminders of what was, but some are not. These are the scariest of all – for they are prisons, holding the dust of what was.

Imagine: trapped for all eternity, staring out at the nameless faces passing below while you live on, eternally damned.

That is my fate, since I met Medusa.

  • Nice take on the prompt, but be sure to come by for a different look at Medusa. 😉 I do like how the gods die and are reborn. It’s a good take on what’s happened.
