100 on revenge

From the flash fiction challenge at terribleminds. 99 words. Enjoy

He had beaten me down, destroyed me utterly. Left me adrift in the world with all my friends arranged against me. Hell I couldn't even get a decent job for years, all for one insult. Moral of the story is never piss off an ancient.
For a while I wanted to destroy him, but if not impossible it's difficult. And I had to ask. Would it be worth it? It would cost me so much. In the end I struggled through, made a new life, and now my world is great. The best revenge is living well after all.

  1. That really is the best revenge after all, isn't it?
    I'm not quite so zen, myself.
