Twittering Tales #68. 23 January. The Village.

This week our photo Prompt from Kat Myrman of Like Murcury Colliding for Twittering Tales, is a lovely Scandinavian looking village..

And we all watch those Scandinavian detective stories don’t we …. So dark!

The Village. ( Byen)

Dark fell, the lights in the village came on giving the place a fairytale look. From on top of the snowy ridge he stood wrapped up against the cold. Knife in gloved hand dripping blood.
From his green shoes to his red feathered hat the elf looked so cute. Just don’t invite him in.

    What a great twist, Willow. Putting a darker sense of the things we find nice is always a great way to get us wanting more. You did a great job here.
