This is an entry for the  Friday Fictioneer‘s hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Open to all , ready to rack the right side of the brains!.

The objective is to write a 100 word story based on a photo prompt.


My story follows the photo prompt below

Copyright – Randy Mazie


The old town of Anega was feared for its barbaric warrior tribe. They feared neither god nor nature. Not even death. But the old witch inside the forest struck terror in their hearts. Legend had it that the grand old chieftain of the tribe had stuck a deal with the witch.

When Aurper Jr. took over the reins he decreed that peace offerings be stopped and went personally to fetch her head.

Before the fight could start she turned him into a goat. When Aurper Jr bleated for mercy, the witch pronounced that death would be his reprieve.

  1. Death hey? Well you can’t say fairer than that. Nice one. I hope you get this comment as wordpress is playing up. People are advised to check their spamboxes.

    1. Guess what this comment of yours turned up in my spam ! Can’t understand why ! I already have you in my approved list
      Thanks for stopping by Sandra 🙂

      1. Hi – this is a problem that cropped up Wednesday and I posted on the Fictioneers Facebook page about it and added a rider to my site. Since then several people have found mine and other comments in spam, and WordPress say it’s something to do with akismet spam filtering. I’m still pursuing it, but thanks for looking in there

  2. And this is why it’s bad to mess around with witches. Sometimes the youngsters learn the hard way. I like the mythological feel of this one. This reminds me a bit of the story of Shaka-Zulu who made a deal with a powerful witch.

Go on ! Say what you feel :)
