The Watcher. Flash Fiction Friday #FFF

Friday Flashers have 100 words to tell a story based on an image.
Why not see what the other Flashers have come up with.

The Title came to me immediately, however the flash itself has taken a bit of time. Hope you like it.

The Watcher.

It was his job. The only thing he could do was watch her. He was commanded to watch and not intervene. Each flick of the whip that landed on the previous smooth caramel skin of her back, he felt. The only gift he could give her was to share her pain. Closing his eyes, he savoured each lash, the more he absorbed, the less she felt, until she finally collapsed in a heap on the muddy ground when her tormentor was spent. His heart reached out to hers, in that moment, the change began. His time on earth would  begin. 

Don't forget to pop along and see what other Flashers have come up with. Each one has a slight different take on the image. I'm off to check out the others!
