ROUGH DIAMONDS

by John Yeo

The casting director was infamous and renowned for his powers of seduction.
The beautiful rising film star smiled and speculated on the pile in front of her as they entered the back room of his office.
“These are diamonds”, he said pointing to what looked like a pile of weathered broken glass.
.”Are you serious or just being bloody frivolous? That is a pile of glass on the bench, a heap of glass pieces, I would not give you anything for one sliver of broken glass”
“Why be aggressive and unfriendly? The deal can be very smooth if you are agreeable and amicable. The diamonds are uncut and I have the finest craftsmen available to cut and polish them to a very high standard. These are raw unrefined pink diamonds, they can be cut and polished into beautiful jewellery.
The lady said “You will make a present of these to me if I agree to your demands?”
“Yes!”
The lady then pulled a small revolver out of her clutch purse and shot him dead.
Well she smiled. sweeping the pile into her purse. “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
I may be very amicable, and very frivolous, I am certainly very unrefined.”

    • So many ways to go ~ Is he really dead? Are the diamonds glass? Does she get away with murder? ~ Thanks for your great comment penshift ~ You may have started something here!

      • That’s actually what I love about flash fiction. You can create discreet stories that can be expanded on in so many ways because the need to limit the word count means you invariably have leave thing up to interpretation.

  1. You certainly made good use of the three words here, John. A fascinating little peice which does, indeed, appeal to the imagination regarding potential development / further episodes. Well written!

      • Thank you (and Mara Fields) for introducing me to flash fiction. I can understand now why you all enjoy doing it so much. It is definitely addictive, too. And you do so many of them – very impressive. I’ll look forward to your next one.
