Flash Fiction Friday: Deadly

            “Careful with that, it’s...” she started.
            “What? Fragile?” He twirled the orb around in his hands, smirking. “Don’t worry, love, I’ll be careful.”
            “I was going to say, ‘coated in a deadly toxin.’”
            He dropped the orb and it shattered against the ground.
            “Am I going to die?”
            “Yes. Do you mind cleaning up your mess before you do?”
            “You have to cure me!”
            She leaned against the desk, arms folded. “Only if you leave.”
            “I can’t leave without the book they sent me for.”
            “Then I guess I’ll be cleaning up both messes -- the glass and your corpse.”
