Friday Fictioneers-The Madness of a Woman Seduced

Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for the prompt this week. I encourage both kudos and criticisms. I’m tough. I can take it. Most of the time. It ain’t easy being a tender hearted potty mouth such as moi. Yes, the story is romantic. Sort of. I promised myself there’d be a death. No one dies, but a love does.

My brother Rory edited my story. He takes my words and makes them shine. If I get famous, I’m taking him with me. I promise.

Don’t like the genre, get bent. It’s what I do best.

Genre: Romance (with a side of broken heart)

copyright-claire-fuller…and the long-stemmed red tulips bent in the breeze like exotic women accepting homage.

Susan Fromberg Schaeffer, “The Madness of a Seduced Woman”

“You seduced me. Made me love you. Then you left.”

“Yes, I did. You fell. But that wasn’t my fault.”

“Of course it wasn’t your fault. Nothing ever is. You called me crazy. I’m far from it.”

“I said you ‘acted’ crazy.”

“Same thing.”

“No, it isn’t.”

“A woman seduced carries her own brand of madness.”

“I’m sorry.”

“No, you’re not. David’s here. Now leave.”

He touches her cheek, he walks away. She picks up hammer and chisel. Metal strikes stone, dust flies. An image appears, of lovers, holding fast. She scrawls a lopsided heart. It is finished, so are they.

    • Sweetheart read away. If you send me a photo, I will be sure to write you a story. It’s kinda my thang. Thank you for adding me to your favorites. That tickles me to pieces. 😉

      Love, Renee.

  1. Awww.. Such a sad ending to the story.. Love died, indeed! I like this line a lot “A woman seduced carries her own brand of madness.” And the last line is bittersweet, reflecting the joy of completion of her art and sorrow for the end of her relationship. Great story.. 🙂

    • Thank you for the great comment. Yes, a love sure did die. But there was another love kindled from it. I might have to write a longer story. Or I might let it lie. We’ll see. Can’t wait to read yours.

      Kisses, Renee

    • Thank you my sweet. Glad you liked it. Honey, I don’t even read romance novels because they are too schmaltzy. How I ever ended up loving the genre I’ve no idea. I think it’s because I have a romantic heart. And I wanted to write stories that aren’t shitty. I’m going to check out your story now.

      Love, Renee

    • My dear Doug I thank you for the kind comment. I never wanted to be a romance writer. I’m one of those women that abhors them. They are too saccharin. Oh well, maybe I was meant to write them to shake the world up a bit. 😉

      Love, Renee

    • Yes! That’s it exactly my dear. Exactly. BTW if I was able to use more words, David would have been the one she was always waiting for. Not him. Maybe David will appear in another story. So glad you got it is Bjorn. Thank you!

      Love, Renee

    • A woman hurt? Why she carries a brand of madness as well. But it’s more of the fall down in a heap kind of madness. After that initial pain wears off, then she’s pissed. Her heart scars over and she is stronger. She moves on and learns to love but always has her guard up. That’s what a hurt woman does.

      Love, Renee

  2. What an arrogant jerk! (That is, what a good job you did of showing us his personality.) I’m a little surprised, though relieved for her sake, that she settled for taking revenge on the statue.

    • Hi there sweetheart. I’m glad you got the message. But truth be told my character loved him anyway. She did. It took her a long time to realize what had happened to her. She had someone else in her life. Maybe that person came into her life because of what “he” did. He most definitely made her stronger and more sure of herself.

      Love, Renee

    • Hi hon,

      Thank you for the compliment. I love your work too. I promise to keep writing, if you keep reading. I’ll keep reading you also. There’s all kinds of crazy stuff here. Even erotica. Giggle. Glad you’re here.

      Love, Renee
