I came across this awesome blog by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who has this Friday Fictioneer section. So I plunged in with another fiction. Check out the blog for awesome 100 word fictions. 

You gotta respond to the photo prompt with 100 words story. 

So here is my entry.

You can read my earlier short fictions here.

The Cursed King

I see you in trouble… it pains me.

I want to set you free.

I went against your wishes. I was blind, I didn’t think about you. Warmth of romance and the dazzling beauty of the woman blinded me. I wanted only her.

But this is what she has made me. Forgive me Oh People, your king stands today as a stoned statue and can’t fight for you.

Pray to the Almighty, my people, beg him to remove this curse – pray that I can send the queen of underground back to her empire and set you free from this anarchy.

    Did the picture set off this story? It's quite fascinating.

    What a fun concept and great picture, must have inspired lots of ideas for stories. I liked your perspective and how much you were able to share in 100 words. Well done!

    So much fun to read! I know how difficult it is to limit oneself to 100 words. I am guilty of using an excess of words, because I love them so.

    (as a stoned statue and can’t fight for you.You might want to change this to stone statue unless you mean he's on drugs which really puts a new cast on the story.) This is very well written in 100 words. A pleasure to read.

    yep, he is cursed by the underground queen to be a statue of stone!

    The king is truly cursed. It's a hard life.

    Tina, Welcome to Friday Fictioneers! Good story and well written. The king's realized too late he was foolish. Poor king and poor people. Well done. 🙂 —Susan
