Mira stood in waist deep waters, her hand with the flare gun dropped to her side. The approaching light of the hydrofoil looked like an angry demon's eye in the darkness. A smile streaked her bloody teeth. She raised a hand in greeting and felt herself slip into the water. Mack saw her go under the surface and he gunned the boat, the engine screamed under the added pressure. He jumped into the water before the boat had even slowed down, reached Mira, and pulled her to shore. She coughed up water as he laid her down on the sand. Her shoulder was bleeding badly and there was white bone visible under the torn skin.
Mira opened her eyes lazily. "The Electrician is out. Get the fat man." It was misson time, her eyes were glazed with pain but there was a strange focus in them. "What about the Electrician?" he asked.
"I'll handle him."
Mack nodded. "Is there anything you need?" he asked.
"Yeah, help me to the water."
He led her to the water. The boat had floated to the shore and the receeding water had banked the boat into the sand on the shore.
"Go," she said, "we don't have much time."
Mack turned around and started running towards the mansion. Behind him, Mira collected another charge in her hand. Small enough to be useful and large enough to do the work on the boat. She needed the boat's power.
IN THE MANSION
The Electrician moved his shoulder in the socket and grimaced as it slid in with a wet crunch. The pain was amazing, he almost shorted himself with the currents in his own body. He looked at where he had thrown Mira and he saw Mack come running towards him.
"Bloody siblings." he grimaced and prepared another serpent strike in case Mack also wanted a dose same as his sister. But then Mack jumped up on the roof of the mansion and kept running. The Electrician was surprised at this odd behavior when a strike of lightening diverted his attention from Mack. It came from the shore. "Ah Mira"
/On The Roof/
Mack's senses were ablaze with the electricity present in the Mansion. He zeroed in on the source. The Fat Man. He was here and Mack could feel it in his bones. He homed in on the source like a wolf homing on an injured prey. He called forth another lightening strike from the skies and a hole opened up in front of his feet, he didn't stop running and dived straight in.
The Fat Man was sitting in his lazyboy which creaked under his weight. He was looking at a large screen full of monitors that showed all parts of the mansion and one of the cameras showed Mack standing behind his lazy chair. "Welcome, Mack." he said without turning around.
"We have a hit on your name." Mack told him.
"I know that."
Mack was puzzled for a moment, then realization dawned on him. "You ordered the hit."
He heard the smile in the man's voice.
"It gets boring on the island son." He moved the chair to face Mack, his face was lined with age but his blue eyes were full of excitement. "Come and sit in my lap, let's watch some television." Mack obeyed like a docile puppy and sat onto the man's lap which was not much different than the chair.
The TV screens that were disjointed now became a big tv screen with each tv showing a piece of an image. The images started moving on the screen.
The back of electrician's head appeared on the screen. He was bent over something and muttering to himself. The camera zoomed out and the screen filled up with the image of Mira, her shoulders were bare and one shoulder was swathed in white bandages. The Electrician mumbled apologies as he bandaged her shoulder and she jolted him with little bolts of electricity in his ear.
"What a lovely couple, aren't they, Mack?" the Fat Man asked.
Mack started to suck on his thumb. A fuse in the palette of his mouth shorted and his skull exploded, spraying brains all over the fat man's white suit.
On the TV screen Mira let the Electrician kiss her.
This could have ended in 1000 different ways, but i liked this one the best.
Got a few ideas for single post stories now :)
