Sharp Takeover

“Thanks for the company, Dana! See you tomorrow night,” The pale, blonde woman waved at Dana Sharp then faded away. Her ghostly form gave way to rays of golden sunlight.

Pine-Soul

“Welcome to-,” Jack’s introduction to the two women was interrupted by the one in a white suit. “Him?” the pale, dark-haired woman asked the pale, dark-haired woman in a dark suit next to her. Their similarity highlighted their differences. The woman in white sat taller than the other with perfect, flawless alabaster skin and icy…

Zero Showmanship

[OT] Friday Free-Form: Let’s Get Down to Business! “I don’t like your show, Mr. Sero,” Dana Sharp said. She talked to the bald, suited man sitting on the other side of her desk.

“Ms. Sharp!” Howard Boseman jumped when he stepped into his office.

Slammin’? Whatever the…

Sharp Unemployment

Royal Joke

“Today? Impossible.” Marcus Howzer said. He scoffed at Ms. Sharp from behind his large stone carved desk and shook his head. “This kind of technology needs too much approval to be rolled out in a day.” The white-suited woman sighed stood from her seat. “I’m disappointed Mr. Howzer.

Inopportune Opportunity

“Thank you, ma’am,” Perry winked at the cashier and gave her his best smile. The steady, green “90” hovering above her head changed to red and jumped up to 100. “I’m losing my touch,” he thought as he walked away with the small bag of hair products including a fresh box of green dye. He…

Trial and Errors

“Recording,” Melody said. “Batch three-hundred-thousand, eight-hundred and seventeen. Trial..,” Dana paused then looked at her assistant sitting at the control panel. “98,” “Trial 98.
