Forging ahead with fictional endeavours: ~ Write a life on a page and hurry not to its grave; abhor not the coming age, for eternal is the next page. ~ Read what you will, I hope you will enjoy reading as much as I do writing.



Here’s one for Monday’s finish the story.   I’m afraid I bent the rules a little today.  The original starting line is – “Little did they know when the photographer took their picture that they would find themselves trapped in a painting.”  I couldn’t keep the original wording and have it suit my piece.

Little did the victims know that when the photographer took their picture they would find themselves trapped forever in a 2-dimensional prison. They were the lucky ones.

Decades later and Professor Klein was still cleaning up after the serial killer Thomas ‘The evaporator’ Cline. His estranged grandson had earnt the moniker for the odd fashion in which he had made is victims ‘disappear’ – often from busy streets; without fuss or chaos. Thomas’s methods were sociopathic; he would send strange ransom demands along-side increasingly larger sections of the body to his victim’s families. No matter how his damned demands were met the lost souls never returned. The sadistic killer was eventually tracked down via postal routes but the method in which he made people vanish was never officially discovered. That knowledge belonged to the eccentric Prof. Klein alone. Once he finished freeing the poor souls from their photographic prison he would burn all his research, along with the cursed Kapture Kern* prototype and take the bitter secret to his impending grave.

*Kern is a camera of German design from the 1920’s

  1. Well done! I thoroughly enjoyed your story! Thank you for participating in the MFtS challenge! Stay tuned for the upcoming challenge! Be well… ^..^

  2. In order to achieve what you want, sometimes you have to bend the rules (behold, my outlook on life!)
    This is a very interesting story, and well written too. Although it is little, this could be the start of a gripping series.

  3. Love the guy’s nickname – “The Evaporator” 🙂
    Sounds like a pretty nasty dude. Prof Kline has his work cut out for him.

  4. At least there’s someone who can release the poor men. I would suppose that Prof. Klein feels responsible since it was his gramdspm who trapped them.Well done, Penshift. 🙂 — Suzanne
