The Last Dance (FFAW)

“Now, you are sure you know the routine?” Augustus asked Jasmine.

“We have been over it, of course I know it.”

If all went well, it would be the last time she would have him as a partner.

The music began and suddenly she was flung across the room. Augustus followed, grabbed her and threw her again. This time though, Jasmine fell. A doctor ran to help and looked at her ankle, in doing so removed the microchip in her shoe.

Augustus bent over, feigning concern.  Unnoticed, the doctor pushed the needle in swiftly. Traitor exterminated, mission accomplished.

  1. That was one swift move! Augustus bent over and suddenly the needle went in and he was exterminated! No more traitor! Great story and in only a few words. Well done! Welcome to the FFfAW challenge! We are happy you have joined us!

  2. Wow! That was a lot of story in so few words – well done. Great take on the photo prompt. KL ❤

  5. Wow! To be able to incorporate that much of a story in just 98 words, I am impressed! You knocked this prompt out of the park 🙂

  6. I loved this story but have to confess I thought the woman was exterminated and what she was stealing retrieved. I love a story that lets the reader interpret and it is still enjoyable by all!!
