Noirvember 2016 Challenge – 0009
I guess the show must go on…
Let’s try something involving elections and the downward spiral, and that’s fiction 😐 Roll on 0009
Jane Berry has proof her local elected official is a murderer. And yet she can’t get the world to listen. Reporters turn her away, the Party attempt to have her silenced, and her own family – who all voted for him – shun her completely.
The only person who cares is the politician’s daughter, who completely believes Jane. The only problem is, Jane once helped cover up one of the murders and she knows the world cares more about protecting a man, and blaming a woman for past actions – even committed under duress – than doing the complete right thing.
So Jane has a choice to make. If you’re going to die on your sword, should it first be coated in the blood of your enemy? Or do you use it to hack into the landscape and hope the scar becomes a beacon and a reminder.
As Jane walks quietly through the rain, she makes her decision, and heads straight to his house. Words will be spoken.
