This week's six word drabble

It's original fiction.

The words were:

Butterfly. Confuse. Demonstrate. Develop. Mistreat. Presentation.

COURAGE


In an attempt to demonstrate his independence and to prove he was trying to develop a backbone, he got a butterfly tattoo.

He knew doing so would confuse her. She hated tattoos, and up until now he had never dared to do anything she didn't like, lest she mistreat him.

That evening it was his turn to give the presentation. He stood in front of the group and revealed the tattoo. The applause and supportive words gave him the courage he would need to stand up in court and tell the judge and jury why he had killed her.
