Statue of Limitations

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 words

Alton Daily Herald – July 28, 2013

Ms. Joanna M. Talamon buys her groceries down the street from her apartment building entrance.  She was on her way home last night when she was accosted by, of all things, a mannequin at her doorstep.  Ms. Talamon states that, upon seeing the attacker, she immediately dropped her two bags of groceries to defend herself.

“I wish I had known it was him,” Ms. Talamon stated.  “He hangs around the area a lot and we don’t usually worry much about him.  In this case, he was unarmed.  Honestly, he went to pieces on me.”

Head of the Class

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 words

“So, I still don’t understand,” Jerome looked with puzzlement at Sally.  Both were standing in the archway looking at the statue of a Greek’s head that adorned the top.

“It’s simple, Sweetie.  In 212 BC, Clemetis was accused and convicted of lying to the counsel about his involvement in the overthrowing of the city.  They decided to punish him by decapitating him and lording it over the people.”

“So they created this head statue and hung it in the arch to represent his punishment to all the people?”

“Um, Represent? Uh, no…”

“You mean…”  He was talking to her nod.

Friday Fictioneers – 09/22/2012 – Memorial

*Note- since I put another post up today until 10am, I will not change this one until Sunday morning.

Friday Fictioneers – September 21, 2012

“I don’t understand, Dad.” They stared at the three-winged statue on the dock.

“Jimmy, I simply want you to try.”

“Okay, Listening.”

“There was a story of maidens who flew here from stars to have children.  They stayed until birth.  They would take girls back. Boys were forbidden on their planet.  Some killed the child; others flew angrily away.  They were fierce, and beautiful.  Their weakness was sunlight.”  He looked at his son.  The little boy shuffled, then brightened.

“I see!  This statue is to remember them.”

“No,” said George sadly.  “This statue is your mother.  She wouldn’t leave you.”

Namaste,

Scott
