“I must be drunk,” he chuckled as the hand moved.

“Hey Min, is that hand moving?

Handing him a beer, she joined him on the couch.

“Do you believe in fate?”

“Sure.”

“The hand points to your fate, it belonged to the man in the death mask.”

“Yeah, right.” he joked.

“Follow it and discover your fate,” she cooed.

Noticing it pointed toward her bedroom, he rose, anticipating a night of fun. Opening the door, he screamed as icy fingers grasped his limbs, pulling him into a nest he built with his greed, hedonism, cruelty and addiction. The mask smiled.

    Strong one! Well done.

  2. It’s probably good that we don’t all get what we deserve or no one would ever want to go to bed!! Too bad for him that he wasn’t at Len’s, where the hand just pointed to the bathroom! 🙂

  3. Yikes. Puts me in mind of a particular episode of Twilight Zone. The heirs to a dying millionaire were forced to wear masks that reflected their inner selves. When the masks were removed the hideous features remained.
    Well done, Turnip.
    Shalom,
    Rochelle

  4. Hi Turnip,
    That’s a scary bedroom. But it sounds like the world is a better place without him. Great response to the photo! Ron

  5. Anne Orchard says:

    Sounds like he’s going to be held accountable for his actions. Yikes! Nice story, Turnip.

  6. boomiebol says:

    Oh wow….sure didn’t see that coming. Very well done!

  7. writeondude says:

    Not how he thought his night would end, and probably not how I thought the story would end (mainly as I’m still thinking about the negligee in Ron’s!). Good twist.

    Scary.. There is indeed somthing eerie in that hand 🙂

  9. billgncs says:

    justice is served… good one

    I like it that she cooed. More women should do that. The ending left me feeling rather . . . shall we say, frigid?

  11. Ooooh, this was like an episode of Rod Serling’s Night Gallery!

  12. Didn’t see that coming at all. Awesome job.

  13. Oh, this is quite dark. That will teach him, huh? I’m not going near any masks. Well done!

  14. Dear Ms. Turnip,

    Ah, the lure of the bedroom. Never fails. A cold end but from the sound of it, a deserved one. Good story.

    Aloha,

    Doug
