Teasetastic Tuesday: See The Evil

I smile, allowing all the hatred in my heart to burn through in a blaze of fury, and stand to my full-height. I tower over him, an angry skyscraper to his pissant warehouse. “No.”

Keith falters, his facade fades. “What do you mean ‘no’?”

I shake my head, perversely amused. “I mean, no. I don’t answer to him. I don’t answer to you. If I want to do something, I’ll do it. If I don’t, I won’t. It’s that simple.”

Keith’s wrath rears its hideous head, and he hisses. “You think you’re God here. But you’re not. You’re a figurehead. Nothing more.”

I give Keith my back, showing his insignificance to me. “That’s where you’re wrong, little brother. I am God here. I clawed my way from the ground up. I earned everyone’s respect. Now, I’m the boss. I’m in control. If I want to watch you bleed, I’ll gut you, and they’ll”—I jerk my chin toward the door—“clean it up. I snap my fingers, and they’ll bury you so deep, no one will ever find you.”

Keith’s hand lands on my shoulder. I shrug it off as though it’s nothing, as if he’s nothing. “This is your warning, the only one you’ll get. Push me, and I’ll push back. I won’t kill you. You don’t get off that easy. I will fuck with you until you beg me to slice your throat. Then I’ll fuck with you until you slice your own goddamn throat. Got me?”
