When she could afford it, Grace liked to treat herself to dinner at the exclusive Café Tricoteuse. This themed restaurant was charming with serviettes stacked in miniature tumbrils and candle holders in the form of tiny guillotines. Even the salt and pepper shakers wore the Phrygian cap.
Grace always preferred a secluded table-for-one where she could relax and enjoy the house specialty -- pan fried sea bass with a chive velouté sauce -- and work on her dissertation entitled "Collapse Of The Ancien Régime," all the while picking the brains of well-preserved aristocratic decapitations which lined the rustic shelves along the back wall.
The crowd cheers as the prisoners are led onto the stage. No longer neighbours and friends but a beast. One mind, a mass of limbs entwined into something not quite human. They cry for blood, for death. The crime doesn’t matter, not to this creature, just the iron scent of blood in the air and the pleas of those scheduled for execution.
The first man walks to his death, an enviable position to be in; the blade freshly sharpened. No words pass his lips, stoic in the face of his demise.
The blade drops, a head rolls, the crowd cheers.
