Your best friend told you she didn’t like him, but the next thing you knew, she was macking on your crush. Your brother said he’d never tell about that time you broke Aunt Cathy’s priceless vase, but now you’re grounded. Betrayal comes in many sizes, shapes, and forms, my Figs, but whether it entails Iago cheating Othello, Peter Pettigrew selling his friends out to Voldemort, or Benedict Arnold turning his coat, it’s slimy. And tricksy.
In Beth Fantaskey’s Jessica Rules the Dark Side (which you can start reading now), Jessica’s husband, Lucius, is framed for the murder of his uncle, Claudiu. When Lucius is sentenced to solitary confinement and death, it’s up to Jessica to clear his name. But how will she know whom to trust when terrifying visions of betrayal keep haunting her dreams?
Your challenge: In 150 or fewer words, write a dialogue-only scene in which someone is betrayed.
