The Apex Predator

Photo prompt courtesy Dale Rogerson

From his position in the Ferris Wheel, Peter could just see her golden hair. It was a good thing that his target was also wearing a red dress, locating her from that height would have been impossible otherwise.

He was close to the top now. He could picture her sweet face in his mind.Β  A pity that he was about to do what he HAD to do.

He took careful aim, working out the Physics, taking the air velocity, and the speed and angle of the Ferris Wheel into account.


And Peter barfed, straight at his younger sister, Emily.


100 words.

    You’ve written your story expertly, starting at a distance from the target, and zooming in, making it personal, and then – the twist! Yeuchh! Beautifully disgusting tale, Anurag.

  6. Good bit of sibling rivalry, brilliantly written and executed!

  7. Abhijit Ray says:

    What exactly was Peter trying to do?

  8. Dear Anurag,

    Here I thought you were going the hitman route. Too funny and all kinds of wrong. Good job.



  9. That ended differently than I expected. Brilliant!

  10. Oh I wasn’t expecting that! Horrible boy! πŸ™‚

    UGH. I’m ashamed to say I’d prefer if he would have been a hitman.

  14. That is what big brothers do… preparing to be men (alas)
