Obsession – A 100 word story

Hi all,

Today’s post is short story I wrote for another flash fiction contest (http://jetreidliterary.blogspot.com/2016/07/the-alot-of-books-writing-contest.html). It wound up significantly less than 100 words, but I got a mention for “great start for a novel.” I hadn’t thought of it that way. Honestly, I’m a little afraid if I was to try to write in that genre, my villains would be a bit one-dimensional (evil for the sake of evil).

Enough lolly-gagging; here’s the story:

Some people say that I’m obsessed. I prefer the word focused. Or fixated. Do it 100 times, then 100 more.

I flash a devilish grin as I kick off my slippers. A girly, ribboned pair that I special order in bulk. Sometimes pink; sometimes purple. But basically the same pair.

So far, none of the crime scene techs has noticed.
