Vincent stared at Lucrecia’s flickering computer screen, watching as the stock company picture of his father wavered and became distorted. He couldn't believe what he was seeing, despite the official Shinra seal of approval. His blood ran cold, as unanswered questions filled his heart with dread.

Lucrecia had worked with his father. Why hadn’t she told him?

Footsteps sounded behind him, as a startled Lucrecia gasped in surprise. Her eyes became distant, and her words were so jumbled, that he couldn't understand what she was trying to apologize for.

"I'm sorry," had only begun to lose its meaning.

Welcome back!

If you're visiting us for the first time, we're glad to have you. Feel free to jump in and have a go at our fourth prompt.

This week's prompt is... #4: Cold.

Cold. At first glance, the meaning is obvious; it's a word that represents a chilly temperature, but it's also a way to describe the lack of normal human emotion, representing the detatched and impersonal. Cold can leave us with a feeling of gloom, and even describe the cool indifference of a killer, when using specific phrases like "in cold blood".

If you'd like to read over the definition of the word "cold", click here for Merriam-Webster's official write up.

Bring on the cold if you wish, but remember to keep it to 100 words.
