Payback (MicroHorror, February 2012)

“What are you doing out on the window-ledge, Wendy? You come right back in, this minute.”

“I can’t.  That woman told me to come out here.”

“Which woman?”

“The one wearing the sparkly dress.  Always flitting about.”

“Why on earth did she want you to go out there?”

“Dunno, she’s a bit uptight about something. Her boyfriend, Peter I think she said.  Apparently he’s been cheating on her.  And she said she was going to give me a lesson about something.”

“What’s she called?”

“Something funny… oh I remember, Tinkerbelle. Yes, that was it.  Uh-oh…there’s the signal…must fly.”


About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

  1. Ah yes, Tinkerbelle, the most psychotic fairy that ever lived. Doing a bit of a mind-screw on poor Wendy, there. Enjoyed this, nice work 🙂

    Thanks for reading Joanna. This was an entry for the MicroHorror 100 word story competition. Not really horror I suppose … unless your name happens to be Wendy. 🙂


I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
