The light from the ceiling of her cell streamed onto her face.
MultiFacet always treated its prisoners well.
She was thankful that it wasn’t a dark dingy cell.
Because she was the prisoner.
"I did not evaporate my father!" It was a sputtering defense, all she could muster.
"Then who did Shabina?" She glared at her accuser who clearly was enjoying her misery.
"Lavindra this entire thing is a setup, for all I know you were the one to do it."
Her cousin looked incredulous. "That's dry even for you Shabby."
She hated that nickname. Especially because it came from another time in her life.
"Do not call me that Lav."
Despite the desperation of the situation, there was a deep satisfaction of seeing her rival rattled by the memories of childhood.
Lavindra's face expanded in embarrassment as the water rushed to it. Her beautiful cheeks looking like she was hoarding all of Dunya's water. But before her cousin could respond through her fat face, the doorwaza of her cell unravelled and in walked…
Relief flooded through her, this was all a horrible mistake.
But the words didn’t come from her mouth.
“Potential Lavindra you will address me as the Oppose.” Lavindra her bluster all gone meekly nodded her head.
“Now then. Please leave I have to speak with my niece.”
