Judicial Execution

The following post is actually from my ficlets account.  It’s a site for short fiction, very short… 1024 characters is the maximum space you get to tell your story.  Feel free to comment here, or at http://ficlets.com/stories/21152 about this story.  I plan on releasing a new chapter each week.


I woke with a start.

“Where am I?”

Sitting upright in a darkened room, I try to reach out with my senses to tell me where I am. Cold, inelegant metal bites into my legs and wrists.

“What the?” I softly question myself.

I come to realize the room isn’t dark, my face is covered by unfinished leather. I feel the same around my chest and waist. My chair is hard and unforgiving as I struggle modestly against my restraints. I feel someone approach my side.

But I am not comforted.

The presence roughly paws against my head with a cold, wet sponge. The cold I knew is now replaced with something much more powerful now, terror.

I struggle more passionately now.

“What’s going on?” I raise my voice to the presence.

The only reply I receive is a sharp blow to the side of my head and a chuckle.

I soon become aware of two more things, the ticking of a clock and the rumbling of a small audience.

As I shout my last words, “Why am I here?” I struggle to understand.

I can hear the switch being pulled into action.
