55 Fiction #003: The Best Friend

#003: The Best Friend

She’s dead…

I know…

Did you…?

Yes…

Why?

She was cheating on me…

Who was he? Any clues?

She wouldn’t tell me …

Just for that?

Fuck you…

You didn’t have to kill her… I could have talked to her…

Really?

You knew how close we were…


*Gunshot* Bastard… I already knew it was you…

P.S. This one was a tight squeeze.... I wanted to give the impression of the two dude's being best friends... Not sure if I managed to do that... Also a little profane I guess... but I think the situation merits that...

I think this does give the impression the two were best friends.

Interesting situation here :)

Yeah... now that I think about it... I could have made this bugger a little bigger... (but it would not have been 55 anymore...) Hmm...

Perhaps the 2nd dude as a doctor... 1st dude as a plain office goer... those 2 and the wife were good friends from college perhaps... wife cheats on 1st dude with 2nd dude... gets shot by 1st dude who discovers her infidelity... 1st dude calls 2nd dude on pretext that wife is 'sick' and then... ... ...

Yeah... sounds about right... might work... I could even throw in a child (perhaps a result of the affair?)... Nah... too much angst... and another loose end to tie up...
