Die Softly

I recently discovered Apple Music. I know what you’re thinking… That’s not new! Okay, you’re right, but I finally decided to give it a try and will even get the first three months free! I’ve literally been listening to it non-stop for two days. Music, for me, inspires my writing. It always has. So, this morning, I found an image and away I went. Love it! 😁

Rain plummeted to earth; huge drops pelted her painfully.

Drenched…

So cold…

Blue lips trembled…

Cobblestones tore into her tender knees; blood lightly curled within the flowing rainwater, like a fragile pink flower that shattered and dissipated in the rivulets.

Her gaze focussed fervently upon the sweet, familiar face of the man who’d raised her. Who’d loved her no matter how badly she behaved. Who’s smile had encouraged her to be herself, to follow her dreams. And, that was exactly what she’d done.

Overconfident, pushy and outspoken, she’d stirred one too many hornets’ nests.

…and her father had paid for it.

Forced to watch as her father was tortured…

Dragged through the streets and publicly crucified…

His death, agonizing…

Left for all to see…

The ache in her heart was more than she could stand. Sobs, that had long since ripped apart her throat, still moved past a slack-jaw, silently.

They were no fools. They knew hurting her would never stop her.

This was far more effective…

This would gut her…

This would destroy her…

…killing her softly…
