WordPlay #11: “Night at the Museum”

Hello again! Thanks for dropping by! I realize I’ve been really lazy with fiction writing (and yes, I know my blog’s name). Somehow inspiration has decided to leave my place for a while and I haven’t found a qay of contacting her yet. Any suggestions?

Meanwhile, let’s return to my old WordPlay. The topic of #11 is “death scenes”. Great. Like I said on my original post over at Geek & Sundry, I think for death scene to have impact the reader needs some kind of emotional investment into the characters. So a short story is probably not the best format (also if you know that there’s going to be some kind of death in the story). Anyways, Nika’s prompts were “crossroads and dead ends” and “the best-laid plans”. Hope you enjoy this story! Comments welcome!

The original version can be found on the Geek & Sundry forums. Feedback welcome!
