100 Word Story #11 Pyro by Paul White

The #100wordstory is just that, exactly one hundred words long.

If you have a story that fits this criteria. Email me, I would love to feature you.


I love watching a fire burn, looking into the flames where the imaginings live, a million images of illusion.

That is why I start them.

The match bursts into life. A fluttering flame. Hungrily feeding. Gluttonous. 

My baby grows stronger. Its tendrils reach out, claiming all about as its own.

I shall watch it become fiercer, wild, ferocious. See it do my bidding, clearing, cleansing, burning the old, the rotten, the evil.

Pride thumps in my chest. Intense satisfaction.

I am a good father.

I have given life.

I have destroyed evil.

I have given freedom.

I am a God.
