That was creepy. The twist at the end was good, but not unexpected. I look forward to the next installment.

I was hoping for Kafkaesque instead of creepy, but I suppose there isn't much of a difference.  It's not the same story as Kafka's The Trial, but I do admit to borrowing a little bit here and there.  Nothing makes sense to our main character.  He's humiliated, treated like 'cattle', and now faces a legal parody or a trial for unspecified crimes.  The judicial system, if that's what it is, we learn is rigged against him from the start.

None of which is unexpected when Sally shows up.  She's such an entertaining (I can't say 'good') character I had to find a way to bring her back.

I did draw the line at borrowing Kafka's giant cockroach (maybe that's what was in the interrogation room).  Insects are too creepy for me....

Jack, I am not literate enough for Kafkaesque to occur in my vocabulary, even with the reference at the very end. :)  In hindsight, I could have gone with surreal and nightmarish. I'll try to file Kafkaesque away for future reference.

Is Sally a character from one of your previous stories, or is she a character from The Trial?

I enjoyed the story, even if it was skin-crawlingly creepy, and hope to see more soon.

Psycho Sally is a character from a series of recent short stories, The Stox Box, here on Gromet.  I wanted to try something different, a character who's cute, loveable and dangerously psychopathic.  Think of a Great White shark disguised as a cuddly puppy.  "Eido" in the sense of the original Greek is key to how Sally works.  It's all in the perception, the mental game of looking but not seeing that's entertaining when used by magicians, but something else entirely when Sally paints the picture of the illusion for her helpless victim.

I'm no fan of Franz Kafka novels.  They are bizarre, surreal and bogged down in abstract (as in boring) philosophical concepts.  My own philosophy tends to line up with the likes of Ayn Rand, and her Fountainhead or Atlas Shrugged novels.  They read like a manifesto for the incurably dominant type of personality.

AS for "skin-crawling", my ambition is to someday come up with a bondage themed equivalent of Hitchcock's shower scene in Psycho.  One of the most memorable and horrific murders ever filmed, even though all we ever see is a shadow on a shower curtain....
