Drabble: Persistent Pest
He waved his arms, shook his body, twisted, jumped, dashed, but no matter how he tried, the human still clung to him. Worse, the human kept stabbing him too, and some of those stabs actually hurt.
“What do you want?” he roared.
“Bring my sister back to life,” the human said.
“There is no return from death.”
“Not for you.”
He bucked and kicked, but the human’s grip was annoyingly stubborn.
“Why should I bring the dead back?”
“Because I will keep attacking you until you do.”
“You will tire eventually, human.”
“So will you.”
“Then we will see who tires first.”
This story is inspired by the game Shadow of the Colossus, where the player is basically an annoying little insect climbing all over these giants and stabbing them to death. From the player’s point of view, the giants are a pain to fight, but I’m pretty sure the giants feel the same way about the player, so we all annoy each other together. Oh well.
