Vengeance

A story I wrote for Friday Fictioneers which I think is very relevant to the topic:

Shahzad’s house was the only one left standing on the mountain after the earthquake of 2005. People would come to see it from far away villages and he became known as a holy man.

Shahzad decided to take advantage of his new reputation and began to sell a cure for pains and aches in a small bottle which he would fill with spring water. “No harm done” he would say to himself while pocketing more and more money. Many swore they had been healed by his medicine.

The next year the floods took away his house and Shahzad with it.

This story has been written for the Friday Fictioneers. For details see the link below:

  1. Karma’s a bitch! This is a masterful tale, Zainab. You really nailed it this week! When I saw the photo, the first thing I thought of was earthquakes… Love that you went with that, along with the twist at the end.

    • Thank you so much, am really loving the comments coming in. My story refers to the earthquake of 2005 which occurred in Pakistan in the northern mountainous areas killing 100,000 people. This is the first thing I thought of when I saw the photo.
