Today is devoted to the other blog that I write, which is the Mondays Finish the Story flash fiction challenge. This challenge gives an opening line to a story that the writer must use and that they write a story that goes along with the photo. The word limit is 100-150 words. Here is my contribution and the title is “Exposed.” The opening sentence is in bold and italicized letters.
“What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” She never thought about the backlash that could come about from her lies and deceptions.
Ginny was finally exposed. She had lied to the community about many things and for so long that she believed her own stories. She could no longer tell the difference between her lies and reality.
There were the lies about the misuse of company funds for personal gain. Someone discovered her bribes, extortion and the kickbacks from contractors. Her collusion with a local realtor was uncovered. People referred to her as the “puppet master” because so many did her bidding, not knowing that they were being set up. Ginny was a user. Once she got what she wanted, she tossed the person aside like a piece of trash.
She stood with the rest when the bailiff said, “All rise, Franklin County Superior Court is now in session, the Honorable Judge Vickerson now presiding.”
