Microfiction challenge #2: Burning Angel

Since most of you seemed to take great relish in seeing the devil in a pair of sweet-looking children, the devil is pushing me to test you with this one. On past performance, I’m not sure it’s a good idea…

I somehow don’t think you’ll need any words to go with this one, but if you do, how about


Please post the link to your story in the comments by Wednesday evening, say if you’d welcome a critical comment from me or anyone else who has one to give, and I’ll post a round up next Thursday. Happy writing!

    1. Updated the round up. Great story of revenge. Loved it! I was intrigued as to how half a shirt stayed on the hanger, but the idea is so beautiful, I can suspend disbelief 🙂
