Tired

Nunti reaches her world again. She is sick and tired of going back from world to world; she just wishes everything could be right again. This time, she lands at the fates house, she is very much afraid of them, but this is the only way to find out if things will be right again. She knocks on the door cautiously.

“Come in” a high voice calls from behind the door. Nunti enters the building. The fates all look at her smiling.  

“We knew you would come around” one says.

“Right... well.... I am afraid” Nunti say.

“We knew you’d say that” the second says.

“I am afraid my father will send me to the human world”

“We knew you’d say that too” the third says,

“What can I do? I am sick of tired of going from world to world warning them of the end... there are so many innocent people and animals out there dying... and there’s nothing I can do about it!”

“We knew you’d say that to” all three of them say at the same time.

“Stop saying that!” Nunti, very annoyed now, smashes a bottle on a table nearby. All three women stop and look up. “What are you doing?”

“There is one way to end it all” the first says.

“The stars are about to align” the second says.

“And you can stop it all with a sacrifice... of royal blood” the third says.

“What do you mean?” Nunti asks.

“Your blood can stop it all...” the first says.

“And everything will be right again” the second says.

“I’ll do it” Nunti says.

“Hahahahah!” the three of them cackle. Nunti is shocked by this and steps back. They all run to Nunti, and she is stabbed in the heart with a knife.

“No...” Nunti is held... and a bloody knife is released from her heart, she drops to the ground. The three of them still laughing, drop the knife into a cauldron on the table. “Noo....” Nunti reaches out and starts to close her eyes. Far away in the distance... a door opens....  

The End
