M is for Monster

I'm doing flash fiction for this year's A to Z challenge, hope you enjoy!



Monster


“Monster!”
“Freak!”
The voices come at me from all sides like knives, voices from former friends and family.
“I hereby banish you from this village,” said a deep voice. “Take your abnormality somewhere else!”
The men tightly clutching my arms throw me away from them, sending me sprawling onto the ground.
“If you are seen here again, we shall show no mercy!”
They turn away from me and begin the journey back through the forest, back to their beloved village.



“Hey,” said a quiet voice, making me jump.
“Who are you?” I asked.
He walked into the clearing, followed by a few others. “Don’t worry, we won’t hurt you. We’re just like you.”
He grinned, his fangs glinting in the moonlight.

  1. Yay for friends - I hope someone takes some revenge on the villagers and teaches them a lesson.

  5. He’s such a sweet monster, not harming them while they took him through a whole journey just to toss him out, I mean he got fangs for God’s sake!
