Editors Flash Fiction ENTRY #3

The Winner

The floor shuddered violently under my feet. Winds howled and lightening flashed as Atlantis slowly sank. Meeko tugged at my hand attempting to pull me through the doorway. "You said it was this way, Star."

I smiled and nodded. He let go and stepped over the threshold. The doors slid closed behind him, the precautionary measures dooming him and the others. I'd lied. The sad confusion in his dark eyes, I would haunt me forever. As would Gideon’s laughter ringing in my ears.  War had won the bet.
