Beauty for Knowledge

It’s time for Friday Fictioneers for May 23.

The challenge is to write a 100-word story inspired by the photo prompt.

Play along by writing your own, reading others and/or commenting on the flashes we fictioneers create.

My piece this week is a modern take on a story from Greek mythology and weighs in at 97 words.
