Practical Demonstration

Post by Scattercat » Sat Sep 04, 2010 4:34 am

Jack walked to the center of the stage. The lights went low, focused on him. The audience quieted as much as the audience at an elementary school talent show ever truly became quiet.

"My talent... um..." Jack began. He hesitated. "I kill monsters."

There was a pause. A baby wailed in the silence; true silence, now.

"With this." Jack brought his hand out from behind his back, revealing a dented and notched baseball bat.

The first nervous titters went up from the audience. They kept laughing right up until the first thunderous footstep rattled the fluorescent lights in their sockets.

I can really picture this one... hopefully the audience will survive.

What kind of monster leaves the crowds of fleeing innocents wholly unmolested?

Depends how good the little kid is, I suppose.
