A Simple Unchanging Fact – Microfiction Short Story

A Simple Unchanging Fact

“There is little that can be done for someone like you, so we are unfortunately stuck with the decisions that you have chosen for us to follow, and in that OUR fate is what it is, this so is yours.” she says with a wiry smile delicately drawn across her face, missing her poorly proportioned lips on several different points.

“Y-Y-You m-make it sound like some sort of t-threat.”

She laughs in unison with a million other variations of herself that inhabit the same flesh sack, before her sunken eyes roll freely in their pool table like sockets. “That is exactly what this is, for THAT is why I am here before you. The landscape that changes with each passing moment, continues to change, yet the drum beat that plays evermore, never stops. We are that drumbeat, and WE are the only way,” she snarls with blatant disregard for thing nor fathom.

“B-B-But I-I-I, I only followed what y-you told me to d-d..” he doesn’t get to finish his words, as she moves far quicker than her broken body should allow her to, and heaves him high into the air.

“DID I NOT SAY THAT WITH EACH PASSING MOMENT EVERYTHING CONTINUES TO CHANGE! DID I NOT SAY ALL THAT CHANGES, CHANGES AGAIN REGARDLESS OF CHANGING BEFORE! THE ONLY THING PERPETUAL IS ME, AND ME ALONE!”
