Free to Try (bloodshed, mentions lottie)

Post  Tom Midas on Sun Aug 12, 2018 10:29 pm

Tom Midas can be seen in his locker room, alone.
-
Tom: "So I'm having a match tonight."
-
Helooks down at his case, sitting next to him on his leather couch.
-
Tom: "I'm going against the former DoubleDown Champion."
-
Tom: "Keyword being former, innit?"
-
He chuckles, but then sighs.
-
Tom: "Look, I'll face anyone that Adam puts in my way on my path to getting what I deserve, the World championship. Be it Lottie tonight or someone like Jimmy tomorrow. It doesn't matter."
-
Tom: "What does matter is that Adam expects me to bother using this-"
-
He points towards the case.
-
Tom: "If I wanted to be tag champion, I wouldn't have ditched the deadweight that was Zack Deathlock. Or better yet I'd take Sammy and Repo Man on by myself."
-
He shakes his head..
-
Tom: "No, no. This case will collect dust like Jeremy Rock's college diploma or a Chris Davis baseball card."
-
Tom: "All that I know is that I won't go looking for someone, go begging someone, to be my partner, and if Adam has a problem with that, he can deal with it."
-
Tom looks  towards his left, at an intricately crafted fruit bowl, currently housing a multitude of different kinds of apples, silently.
-
Tom: "But enough about the future, let's talk about the present, Lottie."
-
He closes his eyes, and remains still, as if he had fallen into a slumber.
-
Tom: "The perfect nightmare. The mistress of Misery...

Sounds like my kind of woman"

-
Tom chuckles, but then opens his eyes.
-
Tom: "But the thing about nightmares, the thing about dreams? Eventually you wake up, Lottie.

The beauty?

The slight dark edge?"

-
He stands up, and walks towards the fruit bowl, pulling a pocket knife out of his pocket, and grabbing what appears to be a granny smith and cutting it in half.
-
Tom: "Like the mind of an old man losing a battle to dementia.

Like an apple left exposed to the air...

It fades away, it decays.

All that's left is fear.

Of the unknown?

Or is it what we've always known?"

-
Tom places one half of the apple on the table, and walks back towards the couch, eating.
-
Tom: "Hide the true you. Or don't, it does not matter tonight. Or any night, Lottie.

I am willing to embrace the creature that I am.

That we are."

-
Tom's face begins to sport a sneer
-
Tom: "And because of that, I am going to win this match. Just like I am going to be Carnage World Champion.

King can't stop me.

Jimmy can't stop me.

... You can't stop me."

-
Tom smiles
-
Tom: "But you're free to try."
-
With that, Tom stands up, and leaves the frame of the camera's view, which pans to the remnants of the apple over what appears to be a time lapse of the clear white growing brown, before eventually leaving behind a rotten carcass.
