This week’s photo prompt from Madison Wood’s Friday Fictioneers is here:
Louella’s family fenced their land with barbed wire – probably to keep out riff-raff like us.
But we were wild, we could get anywhere we wanted to, and we got onto their land. When Louella found us we thought she’d be mad, but she seemed pleased and was real nice to my brother.
He met her often after that, sneaking under the wire, doing God knows what down by the bushes near the stream.
When his body was found, flesh hanging in strips, blood flushing the stream pink, we realised how wrong we’d been.
The fence was to keep Louella in.
