Corridors of power

It was a strange perspective — lying face up on the floor looking at the long row of neon lights.

The cold stone floor anaesthetised some of the pain, but further down his body, he’d lost all sensation.

Blood spurted from his right wrist, and he looked across the corridor to his estranged hand.

Behind him, he heard raucous laughter and above, a knife poised inches from his brow.

Don’t tamper with the fragile balance of power, his handler had said.

He should have heeded the message.

A shot echoed.

The knife clanked to the floor.

It’s Wednesday so it’s Friday Fictioneers day! Thanks again to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for the challenge and to Amy Reese for this week’s photo prompt.
