Flasher Fiction Friday - Off-Broadway

It was over. Tina sighed in relief, inhaling the bouquet on her dressing table. The last curtain on the last show. She was free, having done everything her contract dictated. Walking out of this theatre, she would embark on a new life, away from the spotlight.
Fingernails tickled her spine. She didn’t have to look to the mirror to know Candace was unlacing her. The understudy had been everything Tina could have asked for, making this drawn out obligation bearable.
“Where will you go?” Candace asked.
“Anywhere but here.”
“I don’t know how you can leave the stage.”
“You will.”

  1. Love your flasher. Stardom isn't all it's cracked up to be. I hope Tina will be happy in choosing her new life

  2. That is a very interesting flash. Getting everything we always wanted does seem to teach us a lesson. Very interesting. Very.

  7. Def intense flash. I wonder if they will leave together or not. Have me curious as to why she hated the stage so much and what was her contract. Great flash.
