Fate

“You’ve had ample warning. Are your things in order?”


“Yes. No! I….”


“What?”


“Nothing. It’s just….”


“What? It’s time to go.”


“Is there another way?”


“We’ve done it this way for generations. It’s too late to complain about your lot. You’ve known this was coming. Why are you acting as though it’s a surprise for you?”


“It’s not that. It’s....”


“I know, I know. You put off thinking about it. Now it’s time and you’re not ready. Well you’re going, ready or not. Nothing you say or do will affect your fate. The die is cast. Your fate sealed.”


This post is inspired by velvetverbosity.com 100 word challenge. This week's word: "Ample".
