It’s day 26 of the #TopsyTurvyTVTour over on Instagram! Yesterday Rabbit walked a quiet street at night. Today we find out just who the Topsy Turvy casting director really is. Here we go…
(This is a derivative work based on the TV program Big Brother.)
Sebastian St. Michel leaned back in his desk chair.
One hand sat on his laptop keyboard as he flicked through the screens. His little “cast” was so cute. What were they up to after a long day on the set?
Screen Tara: He watched as the petite woman shimmied into her oversized coat. A moment later she lifted her head, her lips moving. The door to her dressing room opened and a grinning man poked his head in. Tara shut off the light as she left.
Screen Marley: Sebastian cringed as he watched the young man devour a large cupcake.
Screen Lucie: He ran his tongue over his teeth, making a sucking sound as he watched the witch dress. At one point she startled, looking around her dressing room. She hurriedly pulled her shirt over her head. Sebastian sipped from his wine glass.
Click. The next screen showed the set. The filthy Rabbits were shutting down for the day. He scanned the window and zoomed in on Emily’s friend. That one might be a problem. He frowned.
He clicked away, sliding his finger on the mousepad. Where is she? Ah, there she is.
Screen Emily: He set the wine glass on the desk and touched the image on the screen. Emily appeared to be paging through a thick stack of papers. He watched her as she tabbed pages, a worried expression on her face. He couldn’t help but smile. She might’ve escaped last spring, but he had plans for the fall. He watched as she stood, shoving the papers into her large shoulder bag. A moment later Emily door traveled through her closet door.
He clicked his tongue. Naughty girl, he thought. Didn’t the Empire ground her?
He moved the cursor. Aw, his mouth formed a pout. And Templeton. He clicked a few buttons and the camera zoomed in. Templeton looked up at the same time. His icy-blue eyes zeroed in on the hidden camera. The color drained from his irises leaving only a dark ring around pupils shrinking to pinpricks. He smirked.
“Enjoy your pet while you can,” Sebastian sneered at the screen. “In just a few days, Emily’s mine.”
… Tune in tomorrow as Door to Door characters wander onto the set of Doctor Who. (Now posted! Visit this link.)
