Revelation (Friday Fictioneers)

June 15, 2012

Madison Woods presents Friday Fictioneers. She provides a photo prompt and then it’s up to the Fictioneers to write a 100-word story in response to the prompt. It’s challenging, it’s fun and if you like to write you might want to give it a try. To find out more, click HERE.

No one remembered Revelation. The Tellers kept the story alive, passing the history from generation to generation; meeting in secret, in groups no larger than four, eventually they were exposed and eliminated. It may have taken the Qu’roz hundreds of years, but they had managed to erase Revelation from all of history.

Or so they thought.

The Tellers are dead but the history lives, learned only by the chosen. Da-anel is one such chosen and today – at 14 and a finally a man – he will walk the wooded path to the hidden rune and learn of a once-free Earth.

(99 words. One left in memory of the Tellers)

    Michael, this story gave me chills & left me wanting more. I want to know who are these Tellers & Qu’roz? So intriguing. Good job!

    I like this take. Very post apocalyptic and ominous.

    I’m curious to know how Da-anel knows what to do if all the Tellers are dead. There’s a lot more story here, for sure!

    I’m on the link system, or here:

      I think the secret to the history might be in the hidden rune. Thank you for stopping by!

    Michael, Neat story–usually out of my “interest zone”–but I’d love to read more of this one. High form of compliment from me– :-). Well done–I’m hooked!

      BTW — I enjoy your “fishbowl”–always have to play with it for awhile when I visit. 🙂

        Thank you very much, Virginia! And feel free to feed the fish all you want. They love to eat but if they try and tell you they can eat pizza don’t believe them. They’re always begging me and I refuse so they’re resorting to some drastic measures now.

    It is a good take, and intriguing. And I really enjoyed feeding your fish!

      Thank you, Kathy. And the fish thank you, too!

    The story would have come out better if there had been a brief insight to Revelation and the Qu’roz. That’s my opinion anyway.

    Here’s my take:

    i think we have enough of an idea of what they mean.

      Thanks, Rich. 100 words only go so far.

    This was fascinating. I love the subject. Spirituality and ancient civilizations are both right up there at the top of my interest list. I’d like to read more. Mine’s here:

    Hm….I guess we read different bibles…Mine says Jesus appears at the end of Revelation and there will be 1,000 years of peace. Btw, hope you don’t mind but I always over feed your fish bec. they are fun to watch. I’m on the Linky Thingy…but just in case here it is;

    Daniel’s writings were a foretelling before John’s writing on Patmos. Many parallels same inspiration. Nice Michael. Hope you’ll visit mine.
