The Quiet Ones

Scarlet Archer

Just a girl.


You knew each other in school, you were neighbors, but it wasn’t until years later that you become friends. You would meet, make each other laugh, have fun. You needed that in your life; there wasn’t anyone else you could hang out with.

But suddenly he wasn’t in your life anymore.

You’re not sure why. He moved away, but you would still see each other when he was in back in town. Then suddenly he stopped talking to you. You know he’s back in town when you hear gunshots; he loves guns. And that gives you an idea.

He loves guns, so when someone finds him with an arrow through his heart, who could they possibly blame? Not the innocent girl down the street.

Oh, bad plan! I know, only if she gets caught, but still, bad plan! What if she kills her true love? I mean, perhaps he hasn't realized that yet.

She is quiet but her fantasies (and perhaps actions) will be loud. Did she not have a friend or sibling or parents begging her to say something to him? Even an online friend? I guess she was truly alone. The third sentence does say it but it's hard for me to imagine. I mean, I would have jumped at the chance to be friends with some badass archer but I admit that I am all kinds of strange. On a different note, something about this reminds me of a Joker/Harley relationship. But anyway, welcome to Ficlatte.

That... took an unexpected turn at the end, mostly because I don't really get a sense of the resentment necessary to fuel an act of murder here.

Unless she's a sociopath. Then all bets are off.

I want to be friends with this person, but I wouldn't want to let my anxiety get the better of me cos I'd go from ghosting to becoming an ACTUAL GHOST
