Sadistic Teachers and Such!

Hello! The following is a story for our Sunday Photo Fiction prompt (here) of a History class that’s a bit on the unusual side. Slightly disturbing but highly amusing which should make up for it! I hope you enjoy it (or not!) πŸ™‚

Our History Teacher was bit of a sadist. He was trying to teach us his favourite torture methods of the 20th century in comparison to his favourites of 15th century medieval Europe. Suffice to say, we were most definitely not looking forward to this lesson.

He was particularly impressed with how torture techniques had ‘come a long way’ since their peak in medieval times. His favourite modern method involved Β a blow torch inserted into a certain orifice and turned on – repeatedly. This was, as he joyously classed it, “pure genius”, and the ideal way to elicit a confession.

We in the class felt unwell. Plus we had to sit through more of this for another 45 minutes.

He gave us a handout. On it were descriptions of common medieval torture devices. Our job was to list them in order of effectiveness. TheΒ whole class lost all colour in their cheeks as they read down the list. Our Teacher, on the other hand, gushed uncontrollably.

With just 10 minutes left, my survival seemed imminent. Then he hit us with a homework assignment. We are to invent our own original torture device and the best ‘new method’ wins a prize. Inside, we were groaning as the lucky winner gets to accompany our Teacher on a guided tour of The London Dungeon’s where, as he put it, we can see first hand the marvels of past torture devices.

I don’t know what I’m going to come up with but I’m sure it’s going to be the lamest torture device ever imagined. No doubt Teacher will feel tortured reading it especially as the entire class has got the same idea.

Either way, the ringing bell goes and finally, our misery is over!

  1. Haha absolutely brilliant. I would have loved to have had this teacher. Wait, did I mention that out loud? Seriously, though my inner “psychopath” didn’t materialise until I found Friday Fictioneers and then started this one.

    I can just imagine your main character’s torture device. A screw that pulled hair slightly. 😈

    1. Isn’t it great, we can abstain from all ownership of our characters tendencies because it is ‘them’, not us!! πŸ˜‰

      I’m glad you enjoyed the story and thank you for leaving a positive comment πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      And, on reflection, I think I’d of liked that teacher too as his class sort of sounds a lot more fun than my old History class where I was bored senseless (which is why I failed!) πŸ˜€
