All in a days’ work… #FFfAW Challenge


All in a days’ work… 

The place was deserted, It was an hour to closing time. “This place is damn boring.” Adriana whipped her long blonde hair and rolled blue eyes at me. “It’s a museum, gather knowledge, this will be great for your opening semester essay”. I could feel blue eyes rolling at my back as we climbed higher up the staircase.

I wondered why I thought it was a good idea to come here. I should have been more creative. “I would like to go now, can we leave this center of knowledge”, the sarcasm was palpable. She leaned on the stair case rim.

“Adriana, your parents, are you sure you didn’t see or hear anything.”

“I did,” she said calmly “They cried and begged as I sliced them open”

Blue eyes turned icy cold in one swift blink and something flashed too close to my neck. Losing her balance, she tipped over, blonde haired muffled screams lasted but a minute followed by a sickly thud.

I made the call.

“You were right, I got the confession”.

  1. Adriana is definitely a very cold and calculating lady and her calm confession of how she killed her parents is more than chilling. The narrator risked her life to get this confession, and very nearly did lose it! If Adriana hadn’t lost her balance this story would have had such a different ending. Well done.
