I turn to the audience and brag with an evil leer, “Heroes are a dime a dozen, but a juicy villain is a joy forever!”

I take my bow as the curtain falls and the crowd erupts with applause.

“You’ve ruined my noble play!” Raphael is furious.

I had ad-libbed and upstaged my way through the last act, becoming progressively more absurd.
In the final seconds, I broke the fourth wall and, hopefully, Raphael’s career.

Next day, to my chagrin, reviews blared out a blazing success.

“Brilliant writing! Raphael Monteo is the new Beckett!”

“Good guys always win,” he gloats.

Fuji, I love your picture of the evil villain gloating. He was upstaged though and his evil plan to discredit the playwright backfired. Good humorous piece.

Fuji, I really enjoyed this story. The actors plan backfired, which in turn, boosted his own career. Wonder if he was secretly hoping for rave reviews?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
