Senryu : abide

abide by the rules
thinks about it … maybe not
break some, mend others

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Got a new job cleaning house. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. There are worse ways to make a living.

The houseowner said don’t open that door. Well, of course, I had to. Don’t want to be working for a serial killer now do I?

So that’s how I got sucked into a vortex.

Morale of the story: if someone says don’t open the door, quit!!! Anyone who hides a vortex behind a door is bonkers. Besides he still could be a murderer. Great place to dump a body.

Well, he did rescue me so he’s not a bad boss and obviously too nice to be a killer or he’d have left me there.

Did I quit? Hell, no. He doubled my salary. Like I said, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.

——  The end
