I’m a bit weird when it comes to Friday Fictioneers. I look at the picture, try to find the most likely story, then do something completely different. To me, this picture has the look of fantasy, so I avoided that. That’s just me though; I look forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with.
Demon in the Light
“The book’s published.”
With those words, everything I had worked for started slipping away.
“Why do you think Walt did it?” I asked. “Why did he ruin his legacy and put our whole organization in jeopardy?”
“I guess he wanted a clear conscience.”
“But at what expense?”
Demon in the Light was a bestseller. The autobiography of Walt Brody, the founder of Asian Mercy, meticulously detailed his life of secret crime.
Now our donations are in freefall and I’m desperately trying to convince people to keep giving, for the children. And I keep wishing Walt had kept his veneer intact.
