F3, Week 33: I’ll Get You…


Prompt by Joyce Juzwik

Revenge is defined as ‘retaliation for injuries or wrongs’, and those ‘wrongs’ can be real or perceived. Those who seek revenge do so for a variety of reasons. It may be that they believe they have experienced some personal loss at the hands of another, or they may have been on the receiving end of a seemingly harmless prank by a co-worker. Even if the action or remark was not extreme or intentionally dangerous, the desire for vengeance may very well be.
