Tragedy (Daily Prompt)

“What’s the one guilty pleasure you have that’s so good, you no longer feel guilty about it?” – Daily Prompt

“I’m just curious. If you will write after you graduate, what genre will you take?” The dean asks.

I look in his eyes and smile. “Tragedy, Sir.”

His brows furrow. “That’s interesting. Why?”

“To give balance, Sir. Besides, whenever I write tragedy, I feel like I have this godly power to kill someone I like or even make sure nobody ever gets their so-called ‘happy ending’. Those are the pleasures I will never, ever feel guilty about.”

The dean shakes his head and laughs. I just join him.
