Flash Fiction Day 2016
Proxied Knight: Helping or Enabling?
How can I save you when you won’t save yourself?
Will I just become another one of your knights?
Doomed to destroy myself in futility?
Will I just become another one of your victims?
Dead by proxy of you?
“I’m here to rescue youuuuuu.”
The ringtone blares. He knows that tune.
Staring at the nightstand, Dante watches as the vibration of the incoming call steers the cell phone closer and closer to the edge.
It only rings for them.
