Answers (Friday Fictioneers)

August 28, 2015



The file was here, somewhere.

So many racks, so many cabinets. It could take years unless she knew the exact name it was filed under. Only that was the problem, she didn’t know the name.

“So, here is the filing room, and the next stop is the break room. Come this way.” The woman speaking was perky, her suit perfectly tailored and creased just right.

Beth faked a smile and followed after the new recruits. She’d be back tonight. She glanced over her shoulder. She had to know. The answer was here, she only had to find it.
