It is Black Friday in the US and the buying machine is hard at work to get YOUR money today in America. But, it is also Flash Fiction Friday. So hold onto your shorts and your wallet. We have some dosies for you today.

A mere 100 words based on a photo prompt common to us all and selected by the Demon Admin with a demented, twisted sense of challenge. Who can even think when looking at this beauty?

The Painted Veil
He took her picture from his breast pocket, just above his heart. He stared at her long and hard. God, but she stopped his breath.

She was elegant, legs long and svelte, shoulders soft but strong, a huge heart and a small ego. And she loved him.

It was easy for anyone to say, in retrospect, what he could have done, even what he should have done.

It was not as easy to admit to what he actually had done. Not easy at all.

He unleashed himself on her; he broke her. He was not fit to walk in her shadow.
