The Sacrifice…..

Just a short one to get back into the swing of things after a hectic weekend, a daughter with a temperature and sickness and British Telecoms inability to sort out a “technical” problem…..again!!

Anyway, Lily Child’s Friday Prediction was a bit tricky last week.  Her words were: Fellowship, Rain Forest & Goat.  100 words max.  What follows is my effort.  I cheated ever so slightly, but it made me laugh…

The Sacrifice.

“It’s just the rain, Forest.”

“But, Forest not like it. Momma said, life was like…..”

“Fuck! Look, if you want to join the Fellowship, you’re going to have to go out there and sacrifice the goat.”

Forest looked at the man and then out of the window, at the animal chained to a post.

“Forest want to join. Give me knife.”

He took the knife and walked out into the rain. The animal bucked and squealed as Forest slit its throat and began smearing blood all over his face.

“Bet his mum didn’t see that in her box of chocolates.”


Why not give Lily’s Friday Prediction a go.  It’s good fun and great brain exercise.  Oh, and it’s on a Friday….. Hahahaha!  🙂
