Evil Robots

Last ”Faith from Ruin” installment — The Threat

Shane hung up and the iPhone’s screen went black. A smile twitch her mouth and she shook quietly, laughing. He was like an evil robot trying to defeat her, operating on a program designed for every abuser. As a dispatcher she’d heard it all. Laughing tears flowed as she remembered and wondered how she found one of those robots.

Lucy slept, and she wanted a cold drink. Inside she wiped tears and kept chuckling.  At the register she grabbed a vitamin pack and thought, gotta be strong to fight him. Take lots of vitamins. It’d be tragic if Shane won.



100 Word Song, Lance, LeeRoy and Jen provided inspiration with the song “Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots” by the Flaming Lips. Interesting lyrics and I lifted a few and the theme of battling from the song to continue Clara’s story of escaping an abusive husband.
