Flash Fiction Friday: Condemned


Condemned

I could only watch as Adonia bowed her head and wept, the crystal clear tears trickling over her pale cheeks before falling between her trembling cleavage. Her heartache was obvious to everyone who knew her and I desperately wanted to take her in my arms and tell her how much I truly loved her, how everything would be okay, but that wasn't ever going to happen unless she somehow found the exact words needed.
Yet until that day came I had been condemned, thanks to the twisted jealousy of my brother, to spend eternity trapped in the solid gold of this damn statue.

Shivers!! Wow that was intense. I love the twist at the end. Need to write more of this story. I wonder if she'll ever release him and find out the truth of what his evil brother did. Awesome flash!
