Cloak and dagger #AtoZChallenge

Sitting in this car for hours, without food and the realisation that there is no nearby toilet was not what I had in mind.

Stakeouts in movies or on TV usually have a swift conclusion.

This is not going that well.

The note I found only had an address and I don’t have anything to go on other than a little odd behavior.

Desperation wins out and I’m behind the dumpster in a flash, its times like these being a man would be easier.

That’s when I hear the footsteps.

Maybe this kind of thing is best left to professionals.


As part of the AtoZ challenge I am writing flash fiction of no more than 100 words. Today’s prompt was…

Cloak and dagger

You can catch up with my other entries for this years A to Z here.

  1. Raven, without being indelicate being on the other side does not always eliminate all issues or potential for inconvienient moments. But all that aside I like the humor here. Your character wants to accomplish her goal, but as too often hapopens., life gets in the way.


      1. Certainly far fewer than the fairer sex. I cannot imagine being couped up in one place for that many hours waiting for something to happen. This past Saturday my Fitbit reflected that I accumulated 28, 636 steps. I am not one to be still.
