The Case of the Disappearing Marshmallow’s Part 9

30 Jan

As pain filled Peters exhausted body, he resigned himself to the fate he believed was inevitable. All he could do now was watch Pablo make his way up the stairs towards the roof access. Peter was so beaten in that moment that everything seemed in slow motion. Each step Pablo took was like an eternity, and as his foot landed on each step, it echoed with a fury in Peters ears. As Pablo neared the top of the stairs, all Peter could see was his darkened silhouette shadowed by the light that radiated through the cracks in the door. For a split second everything was so surreal he almost thought it was all a dream. As Pablo reached toward the door knob, one more shot of adrenaline rushed through his veins. Disregarding the coils that ravaged his body and the pain that accompanied, Peter the frog stood to his feet and hoped beyond hope.

Pablo reached the roof access door and grabbed the latch violently. As he yanked it open, what stood before him shocked him beyond belief. He was so taken back that he almost fell down the stairs backwards. The next words that he heard pierced his ears and heart like a dagger thrown by an Olympic world champion.

“Pablo,” the voice spoke sternly but compassionately, “you’ve got to give up this evil plan of yours.”

“I could stop you right now if I wanted, but it has to be your choice.”

“Pablo, I’m sorry for what I did to you all those years ago.”

“Not a day goes by that I don’t wish I could take back what I did to you and your friends.”

“I’m sorry that I used you as a roasting stick, Pablo!”

Pablo’s heart melted in that moment like butter being melted in a microwave. His legs got a little wobbly as he listened to Franky the Fox try to convince him to abort his master plan.
