|Subject: Green with Envy [Closed] Fri Mar 10, 2017 4:04 am|| |
The night was tireless. It seemed to go on forever, but now the moon was finally falling and the sun would be rising in a few hours. This meant the night would be settling down to many, but the House of Cards was booming regardless of the time of day. After all, the owner of the Club made the rules of the district, and one of his rules was the party never ended. After all, he was in charge of the entertainment business in Endymion, and all that fell beneath it. The music on the streets were chosen by him. The idols that made it was because he gave them his blessing. Though he answered to the Queen, everyone in the District answered solely to him. And ever since he took power, he made sure to let all know the people were beneath him constantly, making him an enigma to be feared. However, fear or not, the people listened to him if they wanted to make it big. They were envious of the idols making the money and getting all the fame while they were forced to work small time shows to get anywhere. That envy drove them mad and made them do very deplorable things for the attention. Oh how it did...
A man and young woman stood within the deepest bowls of the nightclub. The man, standing at his own personal bar, watched a television screen detailing the remains of young women found upon the streets of Suzie Q, apparently eaten alive. The cause was blamed on the demons, and to reassure the people the police commented that the cadets were hard at work in hunting down the demon that was responsible for the crime. There was one thing in common between all the girls found. They were not only beautiful, but rising idols that had recently gained the District Head's approval.
The man stretched his long finger to the remote and silently turned the television off. He was quiet, as the young woman stared at his back, ready for a response. The look in her eyes was that of a mad woman. Her pupils swirled, her mouth and fingers were covered in blood. Yet, she seemed so happy. So content.
"I.. I did it all. Y-You said I needed to be beautiful.. to be wonderful to gain your approval like the others. I did all I could.. I bought makeup, trinkets.. you said it wasn't enough. I did my hair, had a full make over.. Still not enough.. I gave you my body to do with as you pleased, and still not enough. I-I finally know what you meant when you said to look upon my fellow idols with envy. I-I read somewhere that if you eat something, it becomes a part of you forever.." The crazed woman spoke with a slight stutter as her hands began to shake. "I-I didn't believe it, but I did it anyway.. I ate them. I ate their beauty, and now I-I am truly beautiful, aren't I? I-I am the one to be envied now, yes?"
She awaited to be looked upon by the man, however; he placed a hand upon his forehead and gave a low chuckle. "Beauty cannot be achieved by parlor tricks. Beauty cannot be achieved by devouring others. However, it can be achieved by removing anything more beautiful than yourself. Your envy turned to hatred and jealously, and that's why you gained true beauty. You have my full approval to perform in my most cherished establishment." He turned and bowed, revealing a flower in hand. The young woman was more than ecstatic as she took the flower and bowed her head multiple times. She had gained what she wanted, and was escorted out by security. He continued to chuckled, interested in what would come of her. After all, the cycle would only continue with the next young idol that wished to gain his blessing. She would become envious of the other, and thus another half eaten dead body would appear in the streets of Suzie Q. It was like a game to him, and each night had new participants.
"Alright, who's next?"
A simple question asked as the moon fell and the next day was soon to begin...
