Friday Fictioneers: Swift

PHOTO PROMPT Β© Rochelle Wisoff-Fields




Paul waited until the man he was meant to kill walked into the airport. He had never heard of him before but the woman had given him all the details about her husband. And wired the money to his account. It was his fifth time using the website as an assassin. He had his eye on a nice house by the coast for him and his wife and two little kids.

The man appeared. One swift, well-aimed shot was all it took. The man dropped dead instantly. In the chaos, Paul slipped quietly from the airport and removed his disguise.

  1. This guy’s more than a smidge on the cold side

  2. Nicely done. I’m sure he looks like any other guy, husband and father, in the suburbs. Creepy!

  3. Dale says:

    Jeez. He is focused, isn’t he?
    Wonder if he will ever get all that he is “working” for…

  4. neilmacdon says:

    I liked the idea of an assassin’s website

  5. Iain Kelly says:

    Got to stay focused to get that house! πŸ™‚

  6. Laurie Bell says:

    Oooo one shot. Cold and good at his job. Scary combination

  7. Tannille says:

    He has a dream and will kill for it…

  8. jillyfunnell says:

    We both found assassins in the picture – but yours is a great deal more efficient than mine!

  9. draliman says:

    One step closer to his dream home… I’m imagining the website is called “bookahit,com” or something πŸ™‚

  10. Elegantly told – I like the brisk way the assassin gets on with ‘the job’. Sinister touch to include mention of a house for his wife and kids.

  11. gahlearner says:

    Brr… he is cold. And has these domestic dreams, just your normal neighbour type. Very scary.

  12. The web does have it’s positive side, after all.

  13. Silent, swift, incognito assassin, well described

  14. magarisa says:

    I suspect that the website in question is on the dark web,and that undercover police officers sometimes pose as individuals looking for assassins. Maybe it’s just a matter of time before Paul is caught by one of these undercover officers.
    Nice take!

  15. subroto says:

    All in a day’s work for him. Truly a cold blooded killer. But a great father and husband πŸ˜‰
