Here's a new writing prompt:
It should have a Old Western vibe but can be in any genre. @Mercer is in the Western and so is @Pixel--Dude. Including anyone else on the forum is optional.

New Writing Prompt: On Thin Ice...

@HouseMD volunteers to be a test subject to study the effects of cryogenic freezing. If he survives the test he will be awarded a life changing sum of money. He is supposed to be thawed out after only a month, but instead thaws out over a thousand years into the future. Explain why and what happens afterwards.

DISCLAIMER: Despite having some of my recent life events in this story, it's purely fiction. I would never do what I write about in this story unless I was an actual Mafia Boss. :lol: Since I'm not a Mafia Boss, this is just a fantasy story and only a day dream of one possible thing that I might consider if I was a Mafia Boss. :lol:

Death of an Assistant Chef



It was a rainy winter day on a cloudy November morning on a street somewhere in Eastern Europe. Tsar, secretly the boss of the Tsar Crime Family, a rising star in the international criminal underworld, had been insulted by a lowly worm. The man was a mediocre restaurant worker and what he did was snort at Tsar.
Tsar would often take walks and no one would expect that Tsar was a mafia boss. Six Black SUVs with tainted windows and a luxury sedan with tinted windows pulled down the street when one of Tsar's informants alerted them to the man's arrival. The cars screeched to an abrupt stop. Groups of Mafiosi enforcers and goons stepped out of the SUVs with guns drawn. One of Tsar's henchmen had the most powerful baton and was beating the man.

The man fell to the ground and Tsar stepped out of his car. The lowly worm then saw Tsar's face and realized why this was happening to him. Tsar grabbed a taser and shocked the man until he passed out.
Bystanders were in shock because they were held at gunpoint. Tsar's enforcers had agents on the ground with cellphone jammers on every street block for a 3 kilometer radius. The security cameras and CCTV in the area had been destroyed the night before by low ranking petty criminals.
The lowly restaurant worker had his mouth, hands, and ankles bound, and tossed into the back of one of the SUVs. They sped off to the warehouse district.
At the warehouse, the man, awoke to find himself tied to a chair. He looked around afraid and nervous. Dozens of Mafiosi were in the warehouse.
Tsar was sitting in another chair and drinking a fine wine and having a gourmet Italian meal. He noticed his guest had finally awakened from his nap and said "You insulted me. You snorted at me for no reason, on multiple occasions. Why would you continuously disrespect and provoke someone you don't know? People could be dangerous and I am a very dangerous man. I don't look like I am dangerous but looks can be deceiving! You know what they say about the devil? The Lucifer in the Bible is said to be the most beautiful of all the angels but beneath that beauty is evil!"
The man was trembling and one of Tsar's enforcers ripped the tape from the man's mouth. He winced as it pulled at his slight mustache.
Tsar said "Tell me, why did you disrespect me?"
He muttered and stuttered "It was a mistake."

Tsar looked at one of his enforcers who used a baton on the man's arm. It was so forceful that everyone heard the bone break. The man screamed.
Tsar looked again, unphased by the torture of this human vermin who insulted him, and said "A mistake is something you do once and realize it was a mistake. I'll ask you again. Why did you disrespect me? Why did you snort at me?"
He looked at Tsar and was crying from the pain and burst out "I'm sorry. I thought you were a Muslim refugee or a gypsy."
Tsar got his own baton and said "You insulted me, personally, and while I am neither, I knew your intention. It's not okay to insult anyone with a deeply personal insult!"
Tsar whacked the man against his ribs and several broke in loud cracks. The man coughed up some blood.
The man looked at Tsar and said "Please! Stop! Please!" and was crying.
Tsar looked at one of his enforcers who was holding a hammer and requested it. Tsar bashed the man's hands and broke every bone in both. The man was screaming.
Tsar said "I could stop but I won't. You didn't stop disrespecting me. Be grateful that I am not having my men slaughter your entire family. I'm a just man and a fair man, but you hurt me deeply and you wounded my pride. You provoked this. You invited ill intent by choosing to insult someone like the fallen angel Lucifer. You targeted someone who looked weak and fragile, but they were strong and hardened. Now, the victimizer, you, had become the victim, by the one who you thought you could victimize."
The man was crying and pleading. He had a young child in the world and his wife was another low-wage worker. She would struggle and their child would lose a lot in life.
Tsar looked coldly into the man's eyes and said "I often give amnesty to people who disrespect me. That is, if they offer me friendship or respect, then I will offer them a blank slate. If someone offends me once and repents, then I will forgive them. But you, who doesn't even know me, chose to disrespect me and antagonize me. I don't forgive random strangers who target me or anyone. Sadly, your wife is going to become a widow, and your child will lose their father. They'll know you were killed when you don't return and you probably won't be found."
Tsar had one of his men use a sedative injection on the man. They awoke a mile off the coast of the harbor and then the man saw that his feet were in heavy concrete blocks. A mini crane on the ship had him dangling over the water. Tsar had a powerful laser capable of cutting rope in one hand and gun in the other. He said "Choose your death! Drowning or a bullet!"
The man said with despair and who resigned himself to his inescapable fate "Death by bullet."
Tsar smiled and laughed. Then all his men laughed. Tsar said "Did you really think I would offer you the option of choosing your death? A worm like you doesn't get a choice!"
Tsar shot the man in both his shoulders.
Tsar used the laser and it slowly burned away at the rope and then the concrete block crashed with a splash against the water below. The man quickly disappeared into the depths of the water. Drowning was a slow and primal way to die.
Now, the man who had wounded the pride of Mafia Boss Tsar by disrespect, was beneath the depths. He wouldn't be found for a long time. He would likely decompose and be eaten by sea creatures or bacteria. Such is the terrible fate of someone who wrongs Mafia Boss Tsar.
Tsar told his men "Remember, this is what happens to anyone who disrespects me without provocation! There is no mercy for the merciless! I'm a fair and just man! I often show more restraint but I was tired of this man. Know that I didn't kill him. The water did! He killed himself by choosing to set upon me! In life, one must sometimes kill to demonstrate authority and power. This world is harsh place and often cruel. I show mercy and I can forgive a lot. However, I do not forgive deep disrespect that hurts on a personal level. Remember! If you see anyone deeply disrespect me, then this is what will happen to anyone in the future."
The next morning, Tsar walked down the same street with a black umbrella while dressed in his suit, with two of his bodyguards with him this time. A cross and flowers and memorial altar with the dead man's picture had been placed on the scenes. A poster announcing a vigil for the man was going to be held. Tsar looked at his men and said "I'm a merciful man and a fair man. If I was a cruel man and ruthless, then I would have my men completely massacre everyone who attends his vigil. But I'm a merciful and fair man. Remember this."
They continued walking to continue their day. Tsar's driver pulled up and Tsar went into the back. One of his bodyguards took the umbrella.
Everyone, if they had any doubts, knew that Tsar was a cold and dangerous man. The world made him cold and he's known so much cruelty, that now Tsar had become a person capable of cruelty. Tsar was a noble and peaceful person but he would be extremely cruel to his worst enemies. If someone wants to make a move against Mafia Boss Tsar, they better kill him, because Tsar isn't a man to be trifled with.
