Road Trip Revenge 55

Hate inspired adrenaline
kept him alert
during the six hour drive
across the rolling
wheat covered hills.
Revenge was his prime motivation.
The excitement of the hunt
made him feel more alive
than he had felt in months.
Finally, he would remove
the monkey from his back
and rid the world
of this horrible predator.
This is a Flash Fiction Friday 55.
If you want to know what the hell that means visit g-man.
The challenge is on.
Or if you want yet another challenge write a Sunday 160.
Like a text message, the Sunday 160 only uses 160 characters (including spaces)
Keep on schedule - post Sunday
Let me know you have posted via a comment on my site
Visit at least one other Sunday 160

MM ~ I'm hoping you have a follow-up on this one. Or a short story. It made my heart race a little bit to know what the hell is going on!

Thanks for stopping by earlier.

That's what the desire for revenge can do for you, as long as it doesn't win out in the end. The desire is great, its enactment may not be. It can wind up destroying you.

Terrific poem.

PattiKen said...

I'm with Brian. Who is he after, and what did te predator do? No, wait don't tell me. I suspect it would be too horrible.

Better watch out for vigilantism, tempting though it be.

Go get 'em, MM! This one calls for a prequel and a sequel... write on :)

Enchanted Oak said...

Yes! Revenge is a dish best served cold. But I admit to being left wanting more....
You're good, MM.

Unknown said...

WOW...this is really good stuff, MM.
I want more , please?

Revenge is bittersweet: so much pleasure goes into planning it, and so little satisfaction comes from acting upon it. Great 55!

Revenge is like rust, it eats itself.

Depends on what type of revenge. I hope it is sweet and I hope we get to find out what it is. Excellent my friend. :) Well done. Enjoy your weekend :)

Katherine said...

I would like to request further information? Who was the monkey? What did the monkey do to make him drive for 6 hours to have is revenge?
Very intriguing - Monkey Man!

moondustwriter said...

this guy needs an anger management class. I think he may have been at my 55 earlier in the day

thanks for the visit

Caty said...

I kinda got the feeling that the "monkey" is the predator and he's about to take care of what's been bothering him! That was just my interpretation! Great those thought provoking stories :)

One Prayer Girl said...

We have to wait till next Friday to find out what's next? Tell me it isn't so.

I'll wait. :)


Me said...

This is good! Now, what happens next?!? :)
