Over to Dylan this week for First Line Friday.
Florence paused at the door, “what the hell did you just say?”
‘I said you can’t leave.’
‘Just watch me you arrogant ass. I am not staying here, and you can’t make me.’
‘Actually, I can. It was in the agreement you signed.’
‘ You know, that contract granting your heart’s desire and never wanting for anything.’
‘ I read it very carefully, especially the small print!’
‘My dear Florence,’ he said approaching her softly. ‘Surely you weren’t naive enough to believe you would get everything at no cost?’
‘I want to leave. That’s my heart’s desire now.’
‘No. We made a bargain, and I have delivered on my part. You should have been more careful what you wished for my dear. After all, you made a deal with the Devil.’
‘I didn’t know that! You confused me! I want to go home!’
‘But Florence, this is your home. It’s everything you wanted. And here you shall remain.’
With that, he was gone.
