Save Your Vanity (Charmed, prompt #31)
Title: Save Your Vanity
Word Count: 195
Prompt: #31 - confession
Summary: Confess, roars the demon.
"Confess!" roars the demon.
"Oh, please," says Prue, rolling her eyes. This brimstone and hellfire crap gets so old.
"Confess your sins!" he growls, waving one shuddering, misshapen hand in the general direction of Prue's heart.
Why can't they just attack, she thinks, ready in fighting stance, the potion in her hand. It's so much simpler when they just attack.
"Ah," he says, licking his palm. "Vanity."
"Well, yeah," she says. "I like to look good. What girl doesn't?"
"Mmmmm. You think you can save the world."
"Honey," says Prue. "My sisters and I have already saved the world. More times than you can count."
His yellow, unlblinking eyes stare into her, through her. "You think you can save your sisters."
Prue tosses her hair, because he's not getting to her, he's not. She's been up against things this guy couldn't even dream of, and she's beaten them. She's beaten them all.
He laughs, dark and rasping. "You won't save them. You can't save them."
She shouts, launching herself at him, landing one hard, bone-crunching punch as she throws the potion and the demon bursts into flame, shrieking and melting.
Just another vanquish.
But, as she walks away, she swears can still hear him laughing.
