Savage Exercise: Won’t Get Fooled Again

leave a comment »

At the end of the last meet, we had enough time for a ten minute writing exercise. The group’s become so busy now that we haven’t had time for one of these for a long while. Downstairs was playing “Won’t Get Fooled Again” so Doug decided that was the topic. This is (a now edited version of) what I came up with in ten minutes.

‘It won’t work,’ Marie said. ‘He’s going to know it’s you this time.’

‘Shurrup,’ Cathy replied, as she stuck the tenth post-it note to his computer monitor. ‘Fuckin’ prick has it coming.’

When she was done, each note on the screen said “WANK”, with the exception of the one in the centre, upon which was a detailed picture of a hairy cock and balls.

‘Ace,’ Cathy said. ‘Soon as he’s back from his meeting, he’ll get an eyeful.’

She walked back towards her desk, Marie in her slipstream on the way to her own computer.

As soon as Cathy’s monitor came in sight, she frowned. Her own monitor was also covered in post-its, excepts these stickers contained no insults or doodles. Instead, out of order, were small numbers: 1, 18, 3, 7…

‘It’s like an advent calendar!’ Marie said.

Cathy tore off number one. Underneath, on her desktop, was a small window of a Notepad document. It said, all caps, HI.

Number two, in the bottom right corner, said CATHY.

She tore each note off in sequence, Marie reading each window’s message, until the sentence came in full:

HI CATHY. YOU ARE AN UTTER BITCH. TALKED TO MATT. BAD BEHAVIOUR. HE’LL SEE YOU MONDAY. WON’T GET FOOLED AGAIN.

An Internet Explorer tab was also open. Youtube. The song by The Who.
