The Magician's Assistant



The smoke cleared quick,
and the truth of the trick was revealed;
the rabbit in your hand

sawed in half
with a blade and bath
much like me.

Perfect combination of title card and the horrifying scene that follows. Really no dialogue is needed to create the impact!

you wield brevity like a scalpel ~

Yikes! No magic there, just power. Melodrama delights in such evil, but only if there is a rescuer in the end.

Fireblossom said...

Okay it's horrifying, but I feel like this time you didn't tell enough. Why "like me"? Maybe I'm dense.

Susie Clevenger said...

Profound in its simplicity...

Roan said...

An excellent use of the title card.

Margaret said...

… the rabbit trick went … bad? Just like he broke her heart? I'm with Fireblossom - I need a tad more, unless I "got it"…

Hannah said...

Perfect pairing for the card you chose!
