Visual Dare - Implore

I haven't entered a Visual Dare for some time either - but then the school holidays keep me busy. It was nice to get back in the swing, and this photo prompt couldn't have been missed. Although the prompt word didn't get a chance - the main character didn't allow it! Enjoy. 

Elisa had been waiting all evening, but finally she heard the keys rattle in the lock. She was glad she’d practised the pose otherwise she’d never have lasted so long. She hoped she could keep it just a fraction longer.

She heard the key turn in the lock and his shoes clicking on the parquet floor. She heard them falter then stop – not daring to move her eyes from the focal point she’d found above the front door.

She heard him gasp in amazement.

“Elisa, come out and see this! Elisa, where are you? This is amazing, the likeness is uncanny. I know you said he was good, but… Elisa?”

Thinking about the next step was the only way she could keep a straight face.

His head turned sharply at the ‘thwang’, but he didn’t utter a sound as he fell backwards, dead before he hit the ground.
