Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Business

It's Friday, which means it's time for this week's edition of Five Sentence Fiction. If you'd like to learn more about it, or give it a try yourself, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. This week's prompt was business. Enjoy!

She shook out her hair, admiring the new color. A quick glance in the mirror confirmed her transformation, just a few small changes and she'd become an entirely new person.
The apartment had already been wiped down, every trace of her was gone. She pulled on her gloves, picked up her suitcase and turned to leave; but not before placing a small card on the kitchen table. In her scrawling handwriting it read: "Nothing personal. Just business."

All right, I hope you enjoyed that. I welcome all of your comments below, in the comments section. If you'd like to read past editions, just follow the links below. If you particularly liked this edition, or this blog, feel free to share it with friends. Have a great weekend!

  1. I assume she's leaving behind a corpse.


  2. I wonder of her handwriting will be her downfall? Great piece Melanie!

  3. Or has she cleared the place out of something extremely valuable? I prefer to think this female character is a bit of a modern-day 'Raffles'.

    Nice tight writing :)

  4. Great story with much left to ponder. Since she willingly left her calling card, perhaps the body we seem to feel is near, is rather something else that has been removed. It is even possible that she was his mistress and has removed all traces that she was ever a part of his life!

  5. I'm so glad you all enjoyed it! I'm loving the comments! So many interesting ideas... :)
