One shot in the dark (Friday fictioneers)

March 28, 2019

The gunshot echoed through the warehouse.

“Run.”

“No, I want to stay with you.”

She snapped her gaze to him. “I said move.”

Clearly her glare was more motivational than her words. Ted nodded and slipped from her side.

Now she could focus on the shooter. If he thought he’d stop her reaching the loom he had another thing coming. That fleece was hers. Or it would be, soon enough.

She ducked low and crept forward, her own weapon gripped tightly.

A shout, a shot, a scream.

Damn it. Ted was supposed to leave.

She ran back to save him.

  1. Greek myth as we’ve never seen it before. Doesn’t she know heroes are supposed to sacrifice everything in pursuit of their quest? Probably why few of them were mothers

    • Aha! Fascinating read Neil. Yes indeed. A good question. Are heroes suppose to sacrifice everything?

  2. Myth as action noir, I like it 🙂

  3. Save Ted and sacrifice her fleece? She is not the cold-hearted woman I thought she was.. Very well written!!

  4. Dear Laurie,

    I wonder if saving Ted will be her undoing. Nicely done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  5. A new twist on the Golden Fleece. Imaginative, good writing 🙂

  6. To save or not to save. Of course, she is assuming Ted is the one screaming!

    Ted endangered his own life and spoilt his mother’s plan. What a kid?

    She’s doing the right thing, Ted should be more important than the Fleece. Great action scene.
