For Her Pleasure

158 words

She was a natural-born dancer.  He did not even know her name.  He had heard “Tilly” tossed out once and thought it belonged to her, but was never sure.  It did not matter; he would not approach her, anyway.

He was not a child molester; oh no, nothing so crude.  He would never touch or harm such a child.  She was destined to dance to ballet with symphonies, perhaps, the next world-renown ballerina.  That he could not know.  But he did know something.

It all came from a picture.  She was staring at the crowd, doing what she loved, yet those eyes were blank, devoid of pleasure; she was in too much pain.

He did his work: studied, followed, researched, planned.  Yes, planned, that was the most important.  You see once he looked, really looked, the plans were needed.  Her father was not the man he seemed.  Her father was a monster.

So, her father had to die.

Namaste,

Scott
