Friend or Foe

Her determination to photograph him was almost flattering. “To remember the event,” she claimed. She had taken pictures of the others.

“Can I see?” He asked. She passed him the camera and he thumbed through the pictures, quietly deleting select images. “Would you like to go somewhere quieter?” He asked.

She led him upstairs enthusiastically. In the bedroom, her lips parted, she leant into him…and onto the blade. She gasped as a tide of scarlet seeped across her dress.

“I’m sorry, perhaps you were for real, but I can’t take chances.” He said, as he laid her on the bed.

  1. People (young mostly) today do not realize that not everyone wants to star on their Instagram page. Not to mention the parent and children living a new life but still in fear of an abuser finding them. I don’t take pics of anyone without asking first. If they say no, then no means no. Good story!

  2. Sounds like a ring of killers, where any one could lead the law to the rest. Of course he had to delete the images. Good thing a permanent record of everything done on a phone is stored in the cloud these days. Facial recognition is going to bust this ring wide open.
