Chaotic Motion

A short piece written for this challenge – Thank you Peter



The shooter aimed his weapon from a thousand yards away.

At the bottom of his exhale he pulled the trigger back and held it, waiting to see the impact through the scope.

It was a shot he had made a thousand times before. He’d never missed until today.

Three weeks earlier and half the world away, a butterfly flapped her wings

    1. No new grandchildren. Nope. Just the faces from an old Melchers painting. One of the perks of having parents who taught art and art history. I first saw this painting in one of my mother’s books; when I was but a lad.
