This story is a response to the Challenge posted on Friday Fictioneers, which is a weekly blog link-up led by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields at Addicted to Purple. A story inspired by the photo prompt, a beginning, middle and end in just 100 words or below, making every word count. Here goes my attempt, hope you guys like it.


Too much, he had done and destroyed. He was a builder though, he always made things…but something walked with him that enjoyed breaking all of them. He thought he was jinxed. Brayan never wondered about it after that day, when he first saw her.

She was the one who made him what he was then and what he is now…Brayan lives in a stone house on the other side of the forest.

The Prompt Image

“Are we talking of Mr. Brayan Hose? The billionaire? Is he broke?”

“He’s broken for a change.”

  1. From the way I see it, it is not just a change, couldn’t be less than a transformation! And, he should thank her for the rest of his life, for he must have experienced reality for the very first time. Very nice take on the picture..

      • No one deserves a heartbreak either. But, a heartbreak reveals much about oneself than a relationship would. So, if there was a chance for him to learn about life, then this would be it. And, as you have left a lot to assume in your story, then for me, for a billionaire to arrive to nature’s abode will either lead to a transformation, where Brayan, if not today, but someday, would have gratitude for the person who’s the cause for him to meet real life, or, he wouldn’t last here for too long and go back to practicing his old life, in seemingly new ways. In the latter case, this place is just an escape and so, as you say, he’s a victim of dejection. I realize your story allows both sides.
