The Tattoo

She hadn’t realized she'd buried her memories of her teenage years

What is WonHundred Word Wednesdays? It’s when a group of amazing authors and I write 100 word stories all based on the same short prompt and post them. All the variations are fun to read. Here is my entry for the week.

She hadn’t realized she’d buried her memories of her teenage years. At least, not that she’d admit to herself. She’d been fortunate to escape his insanity. Dawn had broken as she’d run. His power too great at night.

Even, years later, when she’d forgotten everything else, she’d recalled that sky. She had never seen the like again. The reds dancing flames to burn away the past. Burn memories to shapeless ash.

Now, the mirror brought it all back. His mark, the tattoo burned as red on her shoulder as that sky. He was calling her back. Back to the hunt.

Now see the rest.
