Monday Mixer Flash Fiction Challenge

I actually had quite a lot of fun channelling the character of this story, so I hope you have as much fun reading it.

“Ah…Another customer…”
Camilla manned the postern leading into her brothel, her vibrant red nails taking a place of precedence on the doorframe. She watched seductively as a man walked toward her, through the dilapidated streets of the town she had known all her life. His head was down, eyes avoiding any contact with the ruffians in tattered rags who stared at him.
Camilla observed the clothes he was wearing. Black suit; tie; crisp, white shirt…He looked like a very wealthy man…someone who would not want her to bruit about him being there.
She smiled. Keeping secrets like this was her specialty…as long as they had the money to pay…
When he reached the doorway, she could see he was tremulous. Whether it be from nerves, expectation, or fear, she could not tell.
No matter.

She sensuously led him in, and shut the door behind them both.

  1. Wonder what he'll look like on the way out! ;)

  2. Congratulations on winning! The story has a noir feeling, especially at the end. Nice job!
