Queen (Friday Fictioneers)

“That was… fun!” Chloe says.

It will get more exciting, Rose thinks. Playing with the person who bullied you isn’t easy, but Rose makes it look so simple.

Rose snaps her fingers, and the ground shakes. “What is that?” Chloe’s face is troubled.

“Do you know who I am, Chloe?”

“What do you mean?”

“I’m the Queen, Chloe. Welcome to my paradise.”

With that, the trees come alive and they strangle Chloe. Chloe screams and flails, but the trees won’t let her go. Rose momentarily closes her eyes, but relief comes when she hears Chloe’s bones snap.

Rose exhales. “Bury her body underground, and make sure she’ll grow strong.” The kid commands, before she walks away with a triumphant smile to go along.
