“It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.” – The Scorpio Races, author Maggie Stiefvater

I hope it will be my name called.

It’s not.  The new cleric calls no girl to the altar.

There will be no appeasing Sco.

So, it will be all, who die today.

—33 words—

The prompt is the quote from Maggie Stiefvater’s The Scopio Races. I’ve included it at the beginning so you can read it as part of the whole story.

Trifextra: Week Ninety-Two

The Scorpio Races, author Maggie Stiefvater writes, “It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.”  Give us the next thirty-three words of this story, as you imagine it.  Take it wherever you like, but make it original and make it 33 words exactly.
