Fantasy Flash Series Part One

By ALICIA MCLEOD

Colette crept into her brother’s bedchamber quiet as a mouse. It would be her head if anyone found her out of bed at this hour. The moonlight shone softly through the window creating shadows on the wall. She wondered if the shadows would punish her if they knew what she was doing. Suddenly she was at her older brother’s bedside. She brushed the long brown hair out of her eyes, ignoring the film of sweat that had formed on her brow. The bed was tall and she had to stand on her tiptoes to see Cadby’s face. They were four years apart, she eight and him twelve. He looked so peaceful and for a moment she almost lost her nerve. Colette reached into her pocket to grab the vial, and her shifting arm allowed the moonlight to pass by and land on her sleeping brother’s face. There it was, the bain of her existence, her brother’s soft blonde curls laid softly on the pillow highlighted by the glow of the moon. His lovely blonde hair that was so different from her own. She remembered why she was standing there and clenched her fist tightly around the vial in her pocket. She drew the vial out and opened it slowly. The liquid inside had no taste or smell. Just do it quickly and it will be over, she told herself as she raised the vial to her brother’s lips. Praying silently to herself that he wouldn’t wake up, she began to pour the poison down her brother’s throat.
