M for Missing

**Hello and sorry everyone! I just missed out on days I, J, K and L… I haven’t given up completely however, so I shall just continue with day M today.**

She didn’t know what to do. She should be running. The man with the silver slipper was here.

She stood lined up in a row, squished between all the other girls who were trying to catch the man’s eye. She didn’t even think that he was particularly good-looking, but he was handsome enough to attract attention. The girls had all donned their shoes in one corner, hoping against all hopes that the slipper would fit them. She herself hoped it didn’t fit her. She knew there was no way that it would suddenly be too tight or too loose, but she couldn’t have him find her.

She could still see his hate-filled eyes glaring up suddenly, the gun in his hand and the corpse lying in between them. She had turned and run, but lost her slipper. He must have followed her to the club, but she had lost him in the crowd. And now he was here, with the slipper, and there was no way she could slip away.

And suddenly he was there in front of her. His eyes narrowed and he seemed to know before placing the slipper on her foot that she was the girl who had watched him kill his wife.

  1. Oh no! He has found his witness! That isn’t good! Poor girl, she must be petrified! This is a great story and I love the spin you took on the prompt.

    1. Thank you! Definitely a terrible situation to be in for her..

  2. Wow, sounds like the ‘bad’ kind of Cinderella to be. Hope she escaped him and he was aprehended by the police somehow.

    1. I hope so too! It’s certainly not the kind of Cinderella you would want to be.

  3. A kind of reverse Cinderella. Nice!

    1. Not the Cinderella story you want to be living in… Thanks!

  4. Oooo….Creepy! I was lulled into the farce of the Cinderella story and blindsided by the witnessing – great twist 🙂
