Friday Fictioneers is hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who provides us with a photo prompt. Each week’s challenge is to write a 100-word story inspired by the photo. Click here to play along or just read more stories.
Her Name Was Bitch
Her name was Bitch.
She was his whore, whether she wanted to be or not. He broke her down physically and mentally. Her imprisoned soul had no refuge. She cried out for help, but none came.
She found the strength to leave, to live within herself.
She slowly found her voice and her art again. One day, she’ll find her heart again. The struggle’s lifelong, but someday she will learn to love herself and trust again.
Her soul’s the most beautiful a heart can see.
Her name was Bitch. Now, her name is Queen, the scarred, the strong, the loved.
