Short story: Affair



I loosen my suspender and slide my device for devious journalists over my tweed skirt and onto my lap.

I avoided detection all day.

I plug in the cord, to amplify every illicit sound.

I take a deep breath. The genesis of betrayal.

It begins with the breathy rustle of an embrace.

This is the result of a fifteen minute writing exercise. The only constrictions were the time limit and five randomly selected words from the dictionary. Today the words were: avoid, journalist, amplify, genesis, and embrace.
