Day 179 – Cold Cup – 50 Word Story Expanded

“How many times do I have to tell you? How many times do I have to explain how this works? How many conversations must we have until you understand what you have to do?” She yells into the deserted room, her face twisted, her eyes dart around, like following a balloon that has sprung a leak and is flying around the room as it deflates.

“It’s not what I asked for,” she yells. “We each had a role, integral to the others, when one falls we all fall, now, we just look like idiots!” Her eyes widen and her cheeks go red. “How dare you try to blame me, my planning was not to be faulted, if everyone….” She glaces over her shoulder and tightly clenches her hands into fists. “You stay where you are, this is far from over! I will  not be left here to look the fool!” Her mouth drops open in surprise, he eyes glaze over, and the blood runs from her cheeks.

“B-B-But, but, that wasn’t the deal,” she says softly. “What do you mean the deal’s changed? It can’t change, I made it, I’m the o-o-one, what are you doing?” Suddenly she lifts into the air and is thrown across the room, screaming in agony, she hits the wall with a devastating impact and crashes to the ground in a heap, groaning in pain as a ever growing pool of blood forms beneath her.

“W-W-Why?” She says softly as she collapses into unconsciousness, when she next opens her eyes there is no pain, she looks around the room, they stand there, watching her from the shadows, a tall, naked man stands in front of her, he smiles, holding out a hand to help her to her feet.

“Welcome, my love,” he says.
