The Life and Mind of DamnBlackHeart
This is to help keep me actively writing. So expect to see poems, rants, tips on writing, thoughts on subjects, lyrics, me complaining of boredom, reviews, anime, movies, video games, conventions, tv shows and whatever life throws at me.
Prompt 4 -- Framed
In this prompt, you must write a story about a picture frame. You can use the shape as you choose.

A started has be provided: I was framed...


I was framed...there on the beige wall, a mahogany craved frame contain a photograph of me. It was hideous. Of all the photos they took throughout the years they just had to pick them one that I looked terrible in. I wish I could knock it down and burn it, but then it'll lead to an awkward conversation about why I hate it so much. I don't need them to look at me like I'm messed up. I know that I'm not perfect.

I also don't want another lecture on how I should be more confident and to stop worrying about what other people think. It's not about my appearance, it's the fact that when that photo was taken it was during a time that I wasn't myself. I was depressed, angry and on the verge of giving up. I don't want to see that picture every time I come to visit my parents for the holidays. It's a terrible reminder of how selfish and desperate I was for an escape.

Maybe I can get Brian to use his water gun to damage the picture? Or maybe break it some how. I really want to get rid of it. I'm even willing to bribe him. It's ridiculous that I have to resort to that but it's better then confronting them about it. I learned long ago that they aren't understanding people. I just hope this goes according to plan and not spiral out of control.
