VILLIANS

 

A Short Story

 

Written by:

 

Gene Robert Pridgen  II 

 

 

 

 

Rikers Island, New York City

 

40 Years After the Merovingian Address 

 

 

 

The over bearing Emergency siren deafens the ears of Detective Job Kavanagh and Internal Affairs Investigator Aiden Fowler as they enter the facility. An atmosphere of chaos possesses the officers as they watch their brothers in arms run around like frantic children. Screams and brutal bouts can be heard emitting from every corner of the prison. Then there were the flames, and the smell of burning fecal matter and debris that made Job and Aiden believe they were in a thrash yard. The officers take the stairs, because the elevator is deactivated during high alert, and descend deeper into the abyss. They are escorted by three guards, wielding customized P-90 sub machine guns, and can hear the horrors of the prison more vividly the deeper they go. When they get to the entrance of the restricted area of the prison, the gigantic doors open like the jaws of a great ogre. The guards that were escorting Job and Aiden wait by the doors and the officers continue their journey on their own. As their walking to the Administrators office they see members of the Thunder Services Group, the prisons military contractor, all over the place. The mercenaries look as if they just participated in World War 3, some were so injured they didn’t even appear human anymore and others simply besieged the floor with their remains. There were trials of blood all over the walls. The Administrative Head of Riker Island’s Impossible Criminals Division, Wolfgang Rugby, was waiting for them. He was smoking a cigarette as they entered his room. Wolfgang offers them a seat but they declined and Job ask’s to be informed as in to why he had to see such things on the way here.

 

“ How did you fuck up this bad? I mean Christ you just started this gig in January and you’ve already had two escapes. Luckily they were low-level Conduits and easy to neutralize. But if you keep letting this happen, they’re gonna lock you in here. So how many escaped during this master FUCKUP?”

 

Wolfgang hesitates to respond and instead takes a smoke from his cigarette and looks down. Job continues after taking a few steps closer to Wolfgang.

 

“Hey pencil dick, did you HEAR WHAT I SIAD?”

 

Wolfgang looks up at Aiden before responding.

 

“Why the fuck is he here, I didn’t figure you were a snitch Job.”

 

Aiden responds.

 

“This isn’t a formal investigation, I’m just here t—“

 

Job cuts off Aiden.

 

“He’s just here cause I asked him to be. Don’t worry about him. NOW ANSWER MY FUCKING QUESTION OR THIS IS GONNA GET NASTY.”

 

Wolfgang responds.

 

“………………………………. All of them………………”

 

Aiden removes his glasses and walks to the other end of the room to calm himself down. Job walks closer towards Wolfgang in skepticism before responding.

 

“I don’t think I heard you properly, there’s so much white noise and pandemonium in this joint today. Tell me again what you just said.”

 

Wolfgang responds after taking another smoke and scratching is his beard.

 

“They all escaped, every single last one of them, not one is accounted for.”

 

Job responds when right in front of Wolfgang.


“Relax with the cruel humor Wolfgang, I’m not in the mood, it’s my daughters birthday tomorrow so I’d like to solve this and help her blow out the candles. Now give me the profile of the punk who out smarted you, so I can be on my way.”

 

Wolfgang snaps before responding.

 

“THEY ALL FUCKING ESCAPED JOB!!!!!! ALL OF THEM!!!!!!! EVEN THE ONES THAT WERE LOCKED UP IN THE QUARANTINE ZONES!!!! THEY”RE GONE!!!! MR. MAYHEM, A.W.O.L, MADAME EXECUTIONER, THE BONE DOCTOR, THE SACK MAN, THE GUSTAV FAMILY, THE JURY, SLASHER, AGENT DEATH, THE PALE EMPEROR, THE AXE MAN, EPEDEMIC, HUNTER X, CRAWLER, GUILLOTINE, BOOMSLANG, THE HYENA, THE SAPPHIRE MAIDEN, AND EVEN…………. And…………….. even…………………………”

 

Job grabs Wolfgang and slams him against the wall before responding.

 

“TELL ME THAT THE SHOCK THERAPIST IS STILL IN HIS CELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

 

Wolfgang is too ashamed to respond. Job continues after slamming Wolfgang against the wall again.

 

“WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME THIS OVER THE PHONE I COULD HAVE WARNED MY WIFE OR SOMEONE WHO COULD PUT THEM INTO PROTECTIVE CUSTODY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT PSYCHOPATH LITERALLY TOLD ME IF HE EVER GOT OUT THE FIRST THING HE’D DO WAS KILL MY FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU WERE THERE WHEN HE SIAD IT!!!!!!!! DAMN YOU!!!!!!”

 

Wolfgang responds.

 

“I couldn’t tell you that there was a prison break of this magnitude over the phone. It’s against protocol. There could have been people listening, or you might have done something like you said and told your wife or someone on the force. If one of the low class Conduits escapes its no big deal, S.W.A.T and local law enforcement have been trained to combat them. But if people find out that SS rank Conduits like The Shock Therapist and Madame Executioner have escaped, they’ll be mass panic. Plus I know you have a bad heart s—“ 

 

Job throws Wolfgang to the ground and starts walk toward the door before responding.

 

“Were leaving Aiden. “

 

Job opens the door for Aiden and he exits the room. Before Job closes the behind himself, he continues.

 

“I don’t care if this is being recorded. If my family dies Wolfgang, YOU DIE.”
