Weekend Writing Prompt — Poetic Justice

I woke up to find that she had put a thick tether around my neck and tied the other end to a large rock. “It’s time for a change,” she said.

Feeling the collar and leash around my neck, I became frantic. “What kind of change? What are you going to do to me?”

She laughed. “I was planning to disunite your penis from your body, given your history of cheating. The symbolic nature of that act, albeit somewhat medieval, would serve as a measure of poetic justice.

(80 words)

Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “tether” in exactly 80 words.

Also for these daily prompts: The Daily Spur (rock), MMA Storytime (change), Word of the Day Challenge (frantic), Your Daily Word Prompt (disunite), and Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (symbolic).

      Could be! But didn’t they reattach what his wife cut off and then he went on to perform in porn flicks?

        Yes a very complex story which you would need more that 80 words for.

    Linked by an invisible tether, she was always in charge of the relationship.

    That is a little extreme… at least she should have a doctor perform the surgery. Ha, ha!
