Friday Fictioneers: Modern Romance

Brian looked at the clock on the wall then checked his watch. “They’re synchronized” he thought with a smile and pushed the up button on the elevator. On the fifth floor he found the office and went in.

“My wife is cheating on me and I want you to prove it” he said while handing over her picture, work address, name of her gym, best friend, and a check. “Get it done in a week and I will double your money. I want the bitch gone.”

Back in the elevator he sent a text.
It’s done. Be together soon. Love you.

  1. Why, they sound perfect for each other! Why not just keep on keeping on… they are each having affairs already. Why go and change things? Make it messy for nothing…


  2. And so you show us how many of the ills of this world come about. Two people enter into a contract with no intention of keeping it, and with no respect for the other’s humanity. A man like that would have no compunction about shafting business rivals – or murder if he could get away with it – or people smuggling and modern slavery – and all the while trying to maintain a façade of respectability.
    Sheesh – your excellent story lifts the lid on a whole can of worms! You’ve written that very well, Dawn!
