Sometimes Stellar Storyteller Six Word Story Challenge

Every week Nicola asks us to write a story of 6 words, or fewer, based on a prompt that she provides.

The top 3, as voted for “by the public” get to display a marvellous badge on their site. I have been lucky to have been amongst the chosen. I normally have a go every week, but do not normally post the entry on my blog.

This week the prompt is “Wicked”.

Quite naturally, the first thing that came to mind was the horrendous attack on concert goers in Manchester and that resulted in my entry for this week.

Concert ends. Life ends. Humanity ends!

I really hope that I do not win this week because nobody is a winner in wickedness such as was perpetrated by this inhuman, misguided young man.
