HOPE’S REVENGE

The old leaky apartment was not what she was used to, but it was a lot better than her previous accommodations.

“Look to him, he stirs.” Hope urged her assistant. Pandora obliged, running her sharp blade through Zeus’s bound torso. His scream reverberated in the silence, but Hope wasn’t worried. The grilled windows and walls were soundproof.

Many millennia ago she was crammed into that jar with those abominations by the gods. They bruised and scarred her. Innocent Pandora lost her husband’s love- oh, the injustice!

But no more. Hope smiled. She would have her revenge now.

Fairytale Ending

The prompt at Velvet Verbosity this week is “Collection.”

FAIRYTALE ENDING

I’ve been hoarding them for years now. This morning I looked into my cabinet again to check on my collection.

 There are over fifty of them now, of every shape and size I could find. Every day I try each of the glass slippers on, but they never seem to fit! I always make sure to match the size of my foot with the victim’s immediately after she dies…it’s frustrating. But then it took Prince Charming more than a few tries to reach his Cinderella.

 So I persevere until I get the perfect fit.

 

Prince Charming, you’re mine.

CRUSHED

“Xavier, did you run the tractor today?”

“Ayuh, Ma, I did. Ain’t Pa gonna be pleased?”

“Darn right he will be if you’s remembered to separate the heads beforehand. Your Pa, he hates it when the brains spill out and muck up the field.”

“Ayuh, I remembered, don’ worry. I even removed the intestines.”

“Your Pa will be proud, Xavier!”

“Ain’t that Bessie, Ma? Looks like Pa’s back, with them new prospectors. I wonder what they’ll do when they realize we conned them!”

“Oh they’ll be crushed, son!”

Xavier and his mother laughed together.
