Today’s things are: death, humor, stupid
It was a most unlikely alliance.
Death held out a bony hand, protruding from his black flowing cape. The other hand still grasping the blood-stained scythe.
The other figure stood on two legs in an awkward fashion, with its body stooped as it grasped deaths hand in its own. One bony the other fleshy and hirsute.
The figure’s heavy brow raised and it gave an eager grin. Death had granted the creature and its descendants the ability to learn and evolve.
Death, being a skeleton, was incapable of smiling but he displayed good humour in other ways.
When the stupid figure lumbered off to continue its lowly existence, Death skipped off in the other direction, jumping and clicking his heels in a show of triumph.
Stupid though this creature was, Death knew that it would eventually evolve into an animal that would be responsible for more deaths than any other.
He had made an alliance with humankind’s ultimate nemesis: Humankind.
