Horrorween Day 6 – Pathetic – 50 Word Story Expanded

“Why Vincent? Why does all this have to happen?”

“You know why, you know what you did.”

“Is this still about Becca? It was an accident, you know it was. I never meant for it happen the way it did, she wasn’t supposed to be with Kyle, she was supposed to be…”

“Don’t, just don’t. You knew why we were here, you knew she was as my Mexra, my only one, you should’ve warned her, or contacted me. But instead you went ahead with your stupid plan and ended up killing them both. So, now, the time for excuses has passed, and all that’s left is justice. One that I’ll take out, on your skull,” he says, as he places a hand on the sledgehammer’s handle and lifts it into the air.

“P-Please Vincent!” he says. “Don’t, untie me, let me go. Don’t do something that you’ll regret later, something you won’t be able to take back.”

“You don’t get it, do you?” He says, lowering the sledgehammer. “I’ll never regret this, I’ll never want to take it back. You see Hector, I want to expunge you from existence. I want to wipe any trace of you from this world, and I will, tonight. Then once I have done that, I will leave this place, I will tell my people of this world, and we will come back and wipe it from the galaxy, with but the press of a button.”

“What happened to us?”

“Are you now just saying random things in the hope that something will change? You need to understand what I’m about to say, you need to take the information in and process it accordingly. You see Hector, you make me sick, your kind always do, leeches, bottom feeders, scum. You survive by feeding on the weak and vulnerable because you have no skill, no strength, no real power, you’re pathetic, just like the rest of your species!”

“Untie me and find out, or are you too scared?” He yells, Vincent raises an eyebrow, and smiles.

“Threats now, are you that determined to survive, that you risk combat?”

“I knew it, the great Hakelra, warrior of his people, survivor of the dreaded Samarian war, is scared of a human. An aunarmed, wounded, human, at that,” Vincent strikes him across the face with a powerful left, before cutting his bindings.

“I AM SCARED OF NOTHING!” He yells.

Hector smiles as he slowly gets to his feet, gently rubbing his wrists where the bindings were tied. “I’ve got a confession to make,” he says.

“Choose your words well human, for they will be your last,” he says as he readies himself to attack.

“Oh trust me, I will. You see, it wasn’t Kyle I was after, Becca was the one I wanted really, Kyle just seems like the perfect cover,” he says with a smile.

“What? You will die!” He yells as he charges towards him, Hector raises a hand and freezes Vincent in place.

“I should also mention, that I’m also, not human,” he says, as he twists his hand and clenches it into a fist, and Vincent, is ripped apart.

    ‘Are you now just saying random things in the hope that something will change?’ that line made me smile.
    Great touches of fantasy/sci-fi. I always know I’m gonna be entertained when your posts pop up.

    1. Thanks, I was hoping when I found the time today it would flow, it did, a bit too quickly, a bit random, I’m still not sure if it’s complete, but that line was my favourite too, I thought it just worked. Thanks for enjoying 👍 it’s always appreciated.

      Time is a weird element in writing. Different sides of the brain apparently. Last night I had a dream where I was trying to get to school and I didn’t know where I was going and time was running out. I could feel the panic thrashing around in me and I thought… I wonder what it would be like to write from this place?

    1. Thanks, I went into it not knowing what to do, the day hasn’t allowed me any time until now to sit down, so 25 minutes is all I could find to write it, but I think it turned out okay 👍 thanks again.
