Little wonder we stumble in life.

Friday Fictioneers – Abandoned


It had only been a few decades since she’d abandoned it. In the life of a vampire, that’s not very long, and that had only been at the start of her new life. So very few people ever appreciate the young of her kind, unlike for humans.

She had left her broken home and torn through the bush in this old ute, which then had only broken down by the fence. It was the barrier between her old world and her brand new life, and she had jumped it easily. She’d never even thought twice about it.

But now she knew better in the early night. Life was hard here too.

I got the idea for this from the story I’m working on. From Madison Woods‘ blog.

  3. Interesting take on the prompt. Curious to know what you’re story is.

    Here’s mine:

  4. Interesting. I liked the first paragraph with “So very few people ever appreciate the young of her kind…” and the fence as the barrier between her lives. What’s a ute?

  5. I have the feeling you’re trying to tell us that the grass is always greener… Great story. Here’s mine:

  6. Even for vampires, living a normal life like humans is hard. A great story.

    Cheers from the Philippines,


  7. Very good. One suggestion: use of past imperfect was distracting. Otherwise dramatic and powerful. Mine’s here:

  8. Dang human life! It is so much harder! Love your interpretation of the prompt! Well done~

  9. I liked this story on several levels–most of my thoughts have been voiced in the previous posts so I’m just going to say, “VERY nicely done!”


  10. Wow, a totally different take. I am so not knowing of vampires, it was a great read for me. Very cool.

  11. The proverbial greener grass. It sounds like an interesting story you’re working on!

  12. It only looks awesome until your living it. I’ve thought that more than once. Neat use of the prompt!

    Here’s mine:

  13. Yonder pastures are always greener. 🙂 Totally out of the box interpretation of the prompt. I enjoyed reading it.
    Here is the link to mine:

  14. A wonderful read. The ensuing emotional struggle once one finds out that the ‘new’ is only the old with a different name or coat of paint or set of morals. She has to feel disappointed.

    Thanks for your comments on my entry!

  15. I applaud you for your creativity. Sometimes life is hard. Even for a vampire.

  16. I liked this. It’s a nice introduction to what could be a very interesting longer story. Your last line, “life was hard here too” is intriguing.

  17. A really wierd thought about life from a vampires’ world view. A nice take on the prompt. Well done!

  18. I love this melancholy introduction into the life of a vampire young enough to emotively remember what they left behind for better and worse.

    Great job
    Thanks for your remarks on mine:

  19. Even the undead have their issues, it seems. Nice take on the prompt.

    Here’s mine:

  20. Definitely not a direction I expected from the image. Interesting spin 🙂

  21. Life only greener on the other side. Good take on the prompt!
