Friday Fictioneers: It’s All in the Details

The echo of her heels snapping across the floor confirmed that she was alone. The lights were dimly lit, the instruments poised. Sally checked her watch, two hours to go. The sound of dishes clanking in the kitchen assured her things were right on schedule.

She pulled the detonator from her bag and placed it in a center piece near the middle of the room. She walked around it, checking all angles making certain it was well hidden.

She stopped at security on her way out. “I’ve forgotten something at the office. I’ll be back soon” she lied.

  1. Scary story in our modern world. Well written and very gripping.
    This is my first week with Friday Fictioneers and I am amazed at the different takes on the photo. Very interesting.

  2. Great sense of the dramatic, sadly only too topical… and I think the ambiguity suits with the hint of her ‘knowing security – or and security knowing her – adds depth that it is a premeditated and calculated action.

  3. A well-written story that certainly promotes lots of question-marks as to the motive. I reckon she’s either totally insane, a paid assassin, or an extremist, or all three. Who would set a bomb at a concert? Well, look what happened in France not that long ago. There are people out there who do not approve of music.
