“the tragedy of the stone mountain”

<!-- Invalid wp shortcode URL --> fffaw804

Many, many ages ago, there was a stone mountain in the southern corner of Ireland shaped in a peculiar heart formation. One particularly electric night, a bolt of lightning shot off a large boulder and sent it flying down to the field below. It stayed there for countless centuries, and lent shade to many a lovers’ picnic.

But destiny would not have it. For a vicious storm passed and another fateful lightning bolt struck, and suddenly, that absolute monolith was split into two.

At first, the divided boulder mourned its separation. But as time passed, the two stones grew so accustomed to their new positions that it appeared as if they had never been one stone at all. That, one may argue, was the greatest tragedy of the stone mountain.

Word count: 130. For a flash fiction challenge. Well, I tried.

  1. It’s interesting how you write as if the stone’s had feelings. I forget the English Literature term right now but it’s a great device. Great job!

  2. I like that the stone was heartshaped and then was separated into two stones by a lightening strike which became a tragedy for Stone Mountain. Great story Angie! I enjoyed reading it. Thank you for participating in FFfAW challenge!
