Your Orders

by Nobilis Reed

Meet your husband Mark for lunch. At the Mexican restaurant, order the fish. The poison in Mark’s meal should take effect in minutes.

EMT’s, already there will take charge. Slip away and hail a taxi. Inside, shoot your handler and soak the handkerchief in his blood. Then shoot yourself.

Your spirit will ascend, as your karmic debt has been pre-paid. Throw the handkerchief at the crystal gates, destroying them. Take the guardian’s sword.

While the demon horde assaults the citadel, find the oak grove. At its center, drive the sword through the anvil, into the stone.

Reincarnate.

Await further orders.

Folks at one of the writing workshops at RavenCon might have heard an early version of this story.

Is that what you're talking about?
