Flash Fiction: In the End
"Look at them, Marcus. Take away their pain and they’ll do anything! Father always said it wasn’t human, but after all what’s good about human nature? That’s why I’m talking to a severed head." The mad man paused, glancing at the vacant stare and limp skin mounted on the wall. "Well, he’s not here now, so it doesn’t matter anyway."
A knock came at the door.
"What?" he snapped.
The door opened and a man bowed his way into the sterile white room, holding a silver platter in his hands.
"Idiot!" The mad man dashed the platter out of his hands, spilling everything. "I want alcohol."
Smiling and nodding without a word, the man left.
The mad man snarled at the closing door, then paused. A shudder crossed his face, contorting his features. Clutching at the back of a green armchair, the only piece of furniture in the room, as pain shot through his abdomen, he looked at the part of the wall where a faded outline was all that remained of a mirror. He frowned, collapsing into the chair.
Opening his eyes and reaching out for the alcohol sitting beside him were one act, though knowing that it was actually there did not seem to be in his mind. He drank deeply, wiping with his sleeve. With red drenched eyes he looked across the room. “What the hell are you looking at, Marcus?”
Opening of the movie Devdas (2002). Gorgeous cinematography.
