She always kept flowers by the frame to remind her of the person who’d meant more to her than anyone, someone she’d lost years ago.

Placing the fresh flowers in the vase, her reflection caught in the mirror frame.

Then, putting on her façade, she went out into the world.

She was a rebel amongst the crowd.

The new regime banned colour and the conformist crowd wore grey. She wore her blue denim like a badge proclaiming her independence.

The small crowd, like a rivulet of bodies, carried her on, to her trial.

Independence was not tolerated.

She rested in the ruin, the constant sound of the crows lulled her to sleep.

Keeping up the public façade was exhausting and her title no longer bestowed the power that used to enchant her so.

She accepted her time was over.

Satan ruled openly now, money was the way he kept score.

Perfect features and permanent grins gazed at him blankly as he shone his torch into the sealed room.

It had been closed for a hundred years, since the last time artificial intelligent beings had tried to take control.

This time we’d learned from our mistakes. The humans had not.

The tree was a monument to a lost generation.

Each shoe represented a child who’d been shot dead at school.

It was clear that they were dealing with a particularly sick minded killer.

It would have been a kinder, quicker death if they’d used more hardbacks and fewer paperbacks.
