Friday Fictioneers, you know the drill: one photo, one hundred words. If you haven’t been following, hop on over to Rochelle‘s page and see where all we’ve been. This week’s photo is courtesy of Kent Bonham.
“What the hell is this? Game of Bones?”
“Game of Thrones. And no.”
“Then what, the Ripper? I heard FX had rights.”
“Some assistant—you bring me to set for a cameo and this stinking alley is what you give me to work with?”
“You’re a legend, sir. We didn’t think you needed prep.”
“Damned straight. Hey—what’s with the knife? Is this a Scorcese project? That old bastard.”
The blade slid in and out of the aging actor’s insides as smoothly as a prop.
“I told you, sir, it was a role to die for.”
What can I say, Friday Fictioneers always racks up the body count.

Excellent Wanderer, loved the take, and yes I can imagine here is a mounting body count with FF. Well done.
I think I’ve killed off someone almost every week…in fiction, of course!
Glad you liked it!
Well played, darling. Very well played indeed.
I have you to thank…or blame…not sure which
Thanks goodness I didn’t have to have a background of “Game of Thrones” to enjoy and understand your story. 🙂
Lady Helena had the drop on me—-as usual

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, would I have LOVED to have been there to twist it, too! Bravo!
Glad you liked it–thanks for this week’s photo!
I enjoyed it.
A different take. He must have been some bad actor to warrant a final curtain in this manner. Well done.
His agent is not going to be happy. Fiendishly told bit about the knifing. Gross but good in description.
I did not see that coming! Very good story telling!
Ah what villainy is this? Very well told and dark tale. Slid in and out like a prop? Hope it didn’t hurt too much.
Oops!What an end-to a legend!;-)Loved this:-)
Perfect title for his final curtain call. Nice one.
Smooth, very smooth.
