Trifecta week 66: Deja Vu

Imagine that you are watching a movie. Perhaps it is the late night movie on a Friday night. You are alone, sitting in a dark living room staring at the big screen television that you spent last week’s paycheck on. Imagine that the movie is a horror flick, one of those cheesy movies that probably cost less to make than the car you have parked out back.

The movie you are watching is about a murder. The lady of the house is mixing drinks. She has long blonde hair and she is quite beautiful. The camera zooms in to show that she added something to one of the drinks, perhaps to doctor it to her purpose. You guess that maybe she plans on poisoning someone, someone who is yet to appear on the screen. You fall asleep half way through the movie.

It is morning. You are scheduled to meet with a new client, one who could possibly bring a ton of money to your company if she is interested. You dress appropriately and head for her office.

The office is down a long hallway. When you enter the room the place looks vaguely familiar but you can’t figure out why. A  blonde enters the room; you think you have seen her before but again you cannot remember when. She is carrying a tray that holds two drinks. She asks if you would like a drink, and seeing how nervous you are, it seems like a good idea. While drinking the beverage, you remember where you seen the room, and while you are remembering this, you also remember where you seen the blonde lady. That movie you watched, it was her. She was in the movie. How could this be?

That drink, did it contain poison? Your head begins to spin and you hit the floor quickly. Everything goes dark, everything goes silent; forever.


This little tale is my entry into this week’s Trifecta Challenge. The word is Doctor ( a material added to produce a desired effect)

  1. Excellent… and that’s no BS. The first line sucked me right into your story. I love Second Person, and you just pulled off a perfect murder… you killed me. The Twilight Zone awaits you.

  2. I love second person stories. When I was a kid I read a lot of those “choose your own adventure” books. I am going to bookmark this story so I can show people good second person is possible.
