An act of retaliation – Friday Fictioneers

Friday Fictioneers is a weekly group hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction.  Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group.  It’s a great way to get involved in writing.

An act of retaliation

The shadowy figures edged their way along the roof.  How long till they caught sight of me?  The firework display was a welcome distraction but it wouldn’t hold their attention.  

 I put the finishing touches to my own ‘fireworks’ and ran for cover.

 The first of them stepped onto the ladder as the charge ignited.  In seconds the building was reduced to smouldering rubble. 

 As I turned to slip away, a hand grabbed my shoulder and pulled me round.  I struggled needlessly.

 “Didn’t think you had it in you!” a gruff voice said. 

 “Hell hath no fury …” I replied.
