Flash Fiction #29

I had this idea from something that happened which probably isn't related to what really happened... But anyway, this short short story is an inspiration from this randomly occurred event. Hope you enjoy! =)

4:30 PM. Just thirty more minutes until the end of another work day, and I get to go home to relax for the evening. No troubles today fortunately. When a minute passed by, a co-worker, Glenn, noticed something that was in the corner of the office.

He said as he stood up to walk over to the corner, "You guys have to take a look at this!"

David stopped typing at his work computer, and turned around in his office chair at Glenn. "What is it?"

"It's so cool and amazing, yet interesting at the same time." Glenn continued on still being mysterious.

Then Nick turned around at his desk, and both him and David made their way to Glenn with raised eyebrows. "This better be good," Nick said as they were walking over there.

When the three co-workers didn't come back to their desks after five seconds, I couldn't help but glance over at them with curiosity. I couldn't hear their conversation as they were whispering. I finally couldn't dissolve my curiosity, and made my way over there just to see what was going on. I had thought there may have been a small, cute rodent that somehow got into the office. What I found instead was an above-average black spider with long legs.

I yelled as I jumped back, startled, "Oh my god!"

The three co-workers turned around, looked at me, and laughed causing my face to turn a beet red colour. I immediately went to the opposite side of the office looking petrified. After the initial shock and taking a couple of deep breaths to calm down, I heaved a sigh. There goes the monotonous type of day in just one second all because I couldn't stop my curiosity.

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 …
