Editors Flash Fiction ENTRY #9


Rendezvous

“Did you talk to Sara?” Janet slid into the seat across from Alex, and several other café patrons looked in their direction.
Alex cringed. Bet they heard her in Paris. “Its over. She’s out of my life.”
“So, she’ll back off?”
He stared at his hands.
“You didn’t—”
“She said no.”
 “No?” Janet shrieked.
“Claimed she was pregnant. Let’s go somewhere…private.”
“Sara knew about me?”
He whispered, “She’d forgive me if I didn’t see you again.”
“And you—”
“I’m here, aren’t I?” Alex tugged the sleeve covering the scratches on his arm. “Wanna go for a drive?”
