Friday Fictioneers 9-24-2021


Joe walked off the elevator to the front door, stood for a moment looking out into the cold. He’d never done this before, obviously, and he wasn’t sure how things would work out. Stepping outside, he set off down the sidewalk, coat wrapped tightly around his body. He didn’t want to be late.

Later that night, he sat in his room, nursing a drink. The phone rang twice and then fell silent. Finishing his drink, he headed out to drive home. He didn’t want the kids to be the ones to find her.

  1. A.,
    Hired a hit man, did he? I loved how you painted the scenes with a minimal of words but filled with relevant details. Especially about the kids, which gives a clue about the motive. Well done.


  2. tI had to read it again before I put it all together. Can’t decide if he was a decent guy who had just had all he could take, or if he was a rotten guy, even though he’d never done THIS particular thing before!
