Competition of the Week:

Fates #Howdy

May 16, 2020



Teacher: As you know, you are my favorite student, and I think you're clever enough to know why you're here, based on what's been happening in the world, and in class.
Student: Yes, I know why.
Teacher: Good. Let's start with Jeremy.
Student: He wouldn't crack. I've known him since kindergarten, and he takes almost any small insult as a personal attack. He fights back, and is very stubborn. He would never give in.
Teacher: Yes, that is what I thought. What about Mary?
Student: I don't think she would crack either. She doesn't take everything as personally, but she is very serious, and she's quite loyal. I remember how many secrets she kept in second grade, some of which I was in on. The ones I was in on never got out, and no matter how hard I tried, I could not get her to tell me the secrets I didn't know.
Teacher: Very well. Thomas?
Student: He'll give in a second. He's a big jerk. Does whatever he thinks will be best for himself. Has no sense of loyalty.
Teacher: Really? I thought he was pretty loyal. He passed all of our tests for loyalty.
Student: He probably got through them knowing what they were for. He's pretty intelligent, and a threat to us.
Teacher: Okay. It's a good thing I have a student like you who can tell me these things.
Student: Thanks.
Teacher: What about Ang?
Student: They take everything almost as personally as Jeremy. They are not quite as annoying, but definitely would not crack.
Teacher: Good, good. Sammy?
Student: She's practically the same as Thomas, even more so in some ways. We can't trust her.
Teacher: I suspected that. August?
Student: He's loyal, and would want to help our cause, but is also very soft. He wouldn't want to give in at first, but...
Teacher: So are we supposing he'd open up if pushed hard enough?
Student: Yes.
Teacher: Okay. That's it.
Student: There are more people in the class, though.
Teacher: Yes, but everybody I didn't mention, I have already decided could not be counted on to not give in, to the other side. They will be dealt with in the same way as the ones which you said might crack.
Student: And how is that?
Teacher: The exact method is confidential, but let's just say that you'll probably never see them again.
Student: Is there anything else you'd like to talk about?
Teacher: No, you may leave.
Student: Bye.
Teacher: Farewell.

    Howdy. Thanks for entering in my comp! This was an interesting read and it makes me want to know more about the story behind it. Good job! (Also, thank you for entering into prompt 3. I know it may not be fun to win by default but I was really looking forward to reading entries from that prompt and no one did except you so thanks.)
