Prompt for March 11, 2016

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following opening:

“You don’t realize who you’re dealing with. I have certain skills, certain friends, and I will track you down and kill you if you don’t let my family go right now.”

“No, Mr. Pelham, we understand exactly who we are dealing with. We know about your friends. We know about your skills. We know exactly what you are capable of which is why we kidnapped your family. You will do exactly what we ask or …” The voice on the other end of the phone stopped talked, but he could hear footsteps over the line. Suddenly he heard the sound of his daughter screaming in pain and his chest tightened. He kept himself in check, but it was the most difficult thing he had ever done in his life. The screaming stopped but the whimpering began.

“Your daughter now has two broken fingers, Mr. Pelham. If you follow our instructions that is all that she will get, but every time you disobey another body part gets broken. If enough parts get broken … well, you normally throw away a broken toy don’t you?”
