WR101 Prompt Series – 30 Days of September. (05Sept2014)
HS Reunion Assassination
By Cassie Newell
I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me whole. I had been spotted.
I mean who in their right mind, forgets where they buried the body? Apparently I do, after so many years the brain begins to fade, on all the crappy shit you said and did, when you were youthful. Unless they were said or done to you of course.
Trying not to engage with Buffy to much, to cause a scene, “Hi. No, I haven’t seen Peter since graduation and he left for the military.”
This high school reunion seemingly wise to come to, was bringing it all back why I escaped the clutches of this small town. Had I come here under good pretenses versus adding to the body count in which my employer paid me for, I might try to chat with the old inmates of the town. However it wouldn’t be Peter since he died at my hands decades before.
Buffy starting bouncing looking behind my shoulder, never a good sign. “Kiera, Mary and Shannon, check out who this is — Heather Lancaster!”
There I was completely side tracked with the pom squad who is now commenting on my dress and physic while directing personal questions of my life, that personally I would rather eat the bullet I have than place it strategically in the new congressman’s heart. Lord, have divorces gotten messy now, it’s murder that is easy, poor fella.
I don’t remember what the four horsemen of the apocalypse where rambling about when I saw my target, I just remember that I walked away waving goodbye when I saw the guard to the congressman approaching me.
Stopped in my tracks. “What the…”
Peter smiled, “It’s good to see you too, Heather, it’s been a long time.”

I hope you enjoyed my flash fiction/short story. It’s written for the WR101 daily prompt series – 30 Days of September. I used the sentence starter and had a great time just writing for a bit. Who knows, I’m think I may expand later; I’m starting to enjoy Heather!
