FFfAW: Reverse assumptions

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Grant-Sud. Thank you Grand-Sud for our photo prompt!

Stood in his usual place, Todd decided to observe what was going on around him. This was something he did daily, and so people had started to ignore the fact he looked like some suicidal teen about to jump.

Jumping was the last thing on his mind. Todd was a very happy individual and he had bigger plans.

They look like ants, scurrying about their daily lives in a busy way.

Todd enjoyed the feeling of power that standing over them gave him. Although, he did often wonder whether boiling water would kill them too.

Less suicidal and more homicidal.

  1. Well, Todd might be just another angry teenager, but he can easily become a nasty individual. One small bit of suggestion, if you don’t mind – the story works just fine without the last sentence. Just my two cents. Cheers, Varad

  2. Reblogged this on Read 4 Fun and commented:
    After a wasted week dealing with a confrontational commentator, I want to get back into the swing of things with this reblog.

    My comments below are addressed to incoming university students.

    Note the swings from a hint darkness to its complete opposite “happy … big plans” then to normal routine “daily lives” then to a final line of utter evil. All of this done with few yet meaningful words.

    Fun reading and a nice piece of writing.
