Forever Changed

She could no longer hold back time. Time was elusive. A wicked taskmaster. Change was inevitable.

She sighed as she glanced down upon the people of Greece. If only they knew. If only they understood. Her job was not as easy as her two sisters believed. Just a simple snip, they would say. Her sisters, with their spindle and measuring rod, only dealt with life. They knew nothing about death. Nothing about the horror of a battlefield. Or the cries of those left behind. Devastated.

Atropos held her abhorred shears in her hand and cut the thread. Lives forever changed.

  1. I love it! My favourite so far this week ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ally

  2. The Fates! One of my favourite aspects of Greek mythology – and on occasion, some of the most terrifying. Oddly, it’s more comforting – and reasonable – to believe there is no rational explanation for what’s happening, except at the whim of a supernatural force.

  3. Greek mythology/Roman mythology…my absolute favorites! This is a fantastic 100 Words!!!

  4. Love Greek mythology. I always felt sorry for gods/beings who had to be what humans would construe as “bad” – they’re just doing their jobs. Great piece!

    • Thank you, Kat.. I always felt like Atropos’ job wasn’t a great experience for her and wanted to show it from a different angle.. this finally allowed me to do so ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I love this one and you know why for one reason ๐Ÿ™‚ and the other is it is about time and change and I feel that way sometimes. Great post 100 words it must be hard! I can hear you say oh not really lol trying to encourage me to dip my toe in and expand my horizons in your sweet way….lol you are the best at these challenges between us so I will let you do all the work and I will enjoy from here or your other blogs….oh and mine too!!! lol xoxo love ya, Annette

    • Thanks Annette ๐Ÿ˜€ I will admit, those 100 word stories aren’t always easy. I just free write and let the words flow, then afterwards I start trimming. Sometimes I have to murder my darlings in the process, but it is a lot of fun to try to get so much in so few words ๐Ÿ™‚ And yes, you should try it! ๐Ÿ˜€

      • LOL I HAVE BEEN WRITING A PROMPT ON A CHALLENGE AND IT HAS TORE ME UP…JUST LOOKED UP FROM WRITING NOW FOR OVER AN HOUR. NOW, I REALLY DON’T KNOW IF WHAT I WROTE IS WHAT SHE WANTED TO HEAR……VERY EMOTIONAL AND INTENSE POST.

        HERE IS THE LINK TO THE PROMPT….
        IF YOU HAVE TIME TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND CALL ME IF YOU WANT OR CAN. IF NOT I WILL HOLLER AT YOU IN A BIT….XOXOX

  6. I love Greek mythology, and you took the role as one of the Fates really well! Great piece ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I love mythology, and your take on the Fates.

  8. oh, those Fates! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I do enjoy mythology. Sometimes it makes more sense to me than the scientific explanation.

    • Oh I agree, Opal ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks for stopping by, reading and leaving such a lovely comment ๐Ÿ™‚
