Throne of Madness

I see the silhouette on the shower curtain.  There’s a murderer in there, holding a knife waiting for blood.  Is he waiting for me to sit on the throne, so he can kill me while my defenses are down?

Lucky for me, I’m always prepared.  I open the door under my sink and grab a grenade, pull the pin, and lob it over the curtain rod…

After writing this response to the Sammi Cox Weekend Writing Prompt #89, “Silhouette,” I am really into the idea of mental health screening before purchase of weapons.  Also, I was inspired by Tom Darby’s Mental Shit.  I have to admit I read too recently for this flash not to be a direct descendant of it.
