Equine Wisdom – Friday Fictioneers 3/22/13

This week I decided to continue the story from last week. If you did not read last week’s story or need a refresher you can read it here at Freedom Flower. The abused wife starts her new life as a single woman after dealing with the abuser. But she has trouble coming.

The Friday Fictioneers will entertain you with the diversity of style as we all share the same picture but invariable all see something different in the photo. Doug Macilroy supplied the visual reference for this week. It is an outdoor capture of a beautiful animal that I am sure will feed our imaginations quite well.

Detective Sophie Marcus shook off the feeling she should know something more about her current case. This was not the time to be mulling over job. Jeb expected her undivided attention. This beautiful horse was a source of such happiness within her and she needed to focus solely on him.

Jeb picked up the hose when she turned it on to fill his trough. He was a smart horse Sophie knew that. He acted different than most animals, like there was a higher wisdom working between his cream colored ears. Sophie rubbed his nose as she felt the relaxation fill her body. It was at that moment she understood the feeling about her case. The wife lied.

    Ah, the wife lied. Sometimes we think too hard (Well, not me personally). Nice use of the prompt, Joe.

  2. Dear Joe,

    You took in the prompt and used it to serve your purpose perfectly. Your story was outside of the box(my favorite kind) and deftly illustrated the inner workings of your protagonist’s mind. Thoroughly enjoyed this one.

      Thanks Doug, that means a lot coming from you. Was the picture of Mystic from Hawaii? I found the relationship you developed with Mystic to be so touching.

  3. Maybe we should send some horses to Congress…drive some “horse sense” into their feeble brains.

    • Joe Owens says:

      If only that could work. I posted something about Congressional Term Limits as one of my first posts. Their pensions would be tied to their ability to improve the economy and people’s quality of life.

    Nice touch, Joe. I could see that Sophie needed something other than her work to keep her sanity intact. Terrific job!

  5. Trudy says:

    Really well told, and I think the grammar lapse ‘acted different than most animals’ is fine here, since it’s clearly how the narrator talks. One thing, ‘mulling over job. Jeb expected’ reads a bit funny out loud, the job followed by Jeb. But it’s a great piece of writing and I really enjoyed it.

  6. A great team, should be more horses in the police departments

    Ideas come to you best when you clear your mind. Animals are good for that!
