Flash Fiction #24

Sorry for the random idea for this flash fiction story. I felt like writing this out, and I'm not sure where this will go. Let's see... Hope you enjoy =)

"That design looks cool," I said as I was browsing through a kiosk at a mall.

A friend who was working at the same kiosk leaned over to take a closer look. "That looks nice. It's a very cool and simple design. Do you want to wear it to see if it feels comfortable?"

"Sure." I nodded and watched her get the keys to unlock the door of the glass display to get the ring. After placing it on the palm of my left hand, she said, "I'll go check the price of it."

"Thanks." I held it carefully with two fingers and turned it over, noticing just how small and light was the ring. The inside of the ring had an engraving saying it was stainless steel, and matched my stainless steel watch. I tried putting it on and it slid so easily through my fingers. I chuckled silently at the big ring size.

When my friend came back with the catalog book, she told me, "Today is a special promotion so everything is half off; I'll give you a much better discount if you want it since you're my friend."

"I really like it, but the ring is too big for me. Are there other sizes?"

"Sure, hold on a second." She put down the catalog book on a chair, and bent down to open a drawer to pull out many rings that were in storage. After finding the proper size, I marveled at my new ring staring at it from below the light on the ceiling. It was my first ring accessory that I had ever gotten. Especially after what I had went through the previous weeks, that day seemed like the start of a new beginning and a new change for me.

Maria ran up and down the street as she stared intensely for the bracelet that she had gotten as a gift. "Where is it? I can't believe I lost it!" She screamed at herself from within. She could feel the rush in the heart beat, and beads of sweat forming on her forehead and back of the neck.

"I'm sure it must be here somewhere. I checked at home, and at school. I couldn't find it anywhere. How can I be so careless?"

Maria cried when she realized the bracelet was lost, and wanted to cry even more while running around. "I can't cry. Tears won't find my bracelet."

When she saw a bracelet near an alleyway, she jumped at it with disappointment. "It's just some junk." She lowered her head at her bad luck, but she got up with renewed enthusiasm unwilling to show defeat.

After walking down the same route from her home to school for thirty minutes…

Maria jumped up and down, wrapping arms with her teammates as her softball team won the game. "Good job, everyone!"

Her teammates reciprocated the cheerfulness, and celebrated the come back from behind win. Maria noticed Sarah and Taylor coming towards her from the stands, and ran towards them. "Thank you both for coming out! It means a lot to me cheering for us in this type of game."

"No problem. It was really entertaining." Sarah hugged her younger sister, congratulating her.

"That diving catch that you made in the field in the ninth inning was so clutch! I wish I had my camera to take a photo. Good job, Maria." Taylor brushed her hair.

Maria froze for a split second as Taylor was making a mess of her hair. She was glad that she was hiding her face in Sarah's shoulder with that moment, as it started to turn red. She tipped her hat down to try to hide as much of her face as she stepp…

"Shoot her." The boss told me as he handed me a pistol, and guided my hand to point it at Ashley. She was tied to a chair with rope, unconscious.

My eyes were wide open with shock. I couldn't believe what I just heard. "B-Boss, w-what do you mean? She's our comrade!"

"Not anymore. We found out she has been betraying us all along. She's a spy for the police."

"I don't believe you!" I lowered the pistol a little bit, trying to grasp what was going on. "Are you certain? She has to be set up by someone else."

"It doesn't matter at this point. Even if she wasn't the spy, I need to send a message to keep my image."

Ashley woke up from her slumber, and fidgeted in her seat realising that she was tied up. "What's going on?" She saw the …
