Obsession: Friday Fictioneers, March 2017


Copyright Ted Strutz

They’ve come a long way, cameras today.

Thirty years ago, the images were grainy, occasionally blurred, even though I took serious risks to get close, dodging behind bushes, scaling towering boundary walls.

These days, even on the darkest nights, I can indulge myself from a clearing on the hillside, way off the beaten track.

I’ve an entire bedroom filled with your image.  I could show you a complete record of your life, from ungainly childhood to resplendent womanhood.  You’d be amazed, enthralled… captivated probably.

But if I did, I’d have to kill you.

Just as I did with your mother.

I love an early start to my day!  Thanks to Rochelle for her hard work herding the Friday Fictioneer cats every week.  I only have one to herd and I know how hard that can be.

Come and get me… if you think you’re up to it…

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.

    You have a wicked mind, Sandra. That was deliciously chilling

    Ooh, Sandra. This was so chilling. You never know who could be out there watching you or someone you love. It makes this mama bear want to grab her cubs and hide them in a cupboard.

    eeks – creepy ending –
    and sandra, very cool the way the short piece changed three times.
    First – we feel the splendid technology – then – second – we think we are with a parent (perhaps) who has documented their child’s life – and then third, bam! the creepy twist.
    very well done


  4. Very wickedly done and i must i simply enjoyed this offering from you Sandra.


  5. Iain Kelly says:

    What a thoroughly horrible person. I would love to read more!


  6. Dear Sandra,

    Well that was certainly a creepy start to my day. No doubt this guy has a zoom lens and does some magnificent close ups. I’m not ready for mine, Mr. DeMille. 😉 Well constructed story (although a little negative 😉 ) A brilliant snapshot of a psycho.

    Oh, goose bump story. Is it her father? Her mother’s frustrated lover? Doesn’t matter, what he’s doing is evil and I hope he falls head first off one of those high walls!


  9. subroto says:

    So utterly creepy and compelling to read.

    Sandra is sending them to Heaven
    All’s right with the world


  10. pennygadd51 says:

    Your story hints that the stalker is considering telling his victim. Run, woman, run!


  11. Lynn Love says:

    That was a darker shade of black, Sandra. Expertly done, a lovely build and then a killer last line. Very creepy


  12. Dale says:

    Here we are thinking you are taking us on a photography course…
    …. more like a stalking course! May she never find out!
    Well done you wicked lady!


  13. jillyfunnell says:

    Brilliant creepy story. A novel in a hundred words. And hello lovely herded cat. ☺


  14. A stalker from the word go. Where will it all end…


  15. Yikes. He’s a little creepy.


  16. Wow! This fellow is a serial stalker and obviously a serial murderer, too. Thanks for the wild ride. Now I have to look over my shoulder.


  17. Susan says:

    wonderfully chilling Sandra. I will also keep my curtains drawn tonight.


  18. Oooooh, that was twisted, and I loved it! Does that make me a bad person? 🙂


  19. Dan Bohn says:

    Sandra, that was so creepy.


  20. Liz Young says:

    This is chillingly great.


  21. draliman says:

    Oh boy. Stalking (and murdering) through the generations. Very creepy.


  22. curtmercer says:

    That did not go anywhere near where I thought it would! Very well done!


  23. plaridel says:

    the end made me shudder. what a twist.


  24. rgayer55 says:

    So, that’s what happened to Mama Bigfoot. I always wondered how she met her demise.


  25. Alice Audrey says:

    You’ve got that progression from mundane to scary stalker down pat.


  26. Laurie Bell says:

    Eeeep, creepy as hell. Gosh I will have nightmares over this one. Well told but cricket what an evil…

  27. Whoa! Frighteningly creepy peeping tom-stalker-guy.


  28. magarisa says:

    A spine-tingling story!


  29. Halfway through, the story took a dark twist. Very engaging story. It left me with chills! =)


  30. That was absolutely bone-chilling… a stalker sounds terrifying.


  31. Sarah Ann says:

    Creepy and chilling. A wonderful portrait of a stalker, and murderer it seems. I hope he can stay away from his prey and let her live on in oblivion.

    Oh, no, how horrid! Well done!


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