DRABBLE CHALLENGE ~ DISAPPEAR

The drabble is a weekly challenge hosted by Aheila on her blog : http://thewriteaholicblog.wordpress.com A reminder how it works : read the prompt and find your angle ; write a drabble (100 word story , give or take 5 words) ; post a direct link to the drabble in your comments

"What do you mean , it's not there ?" He simply shrugged , walked away .

"Wait ! Come back ! You can't just walk away like you've not a care in the world …"

"It's gone . There's nothing there . Nada . Zip . Zilch ."

A tight ball settled in her gut . "What did you do with it ?" She advanced , a glint of malevolence on her face .

"I didn't touch it ! Just went to check as per instructions … routine stuff ."

Her instinct told her otherwise . She felt chilled . The boss' words had been very clear : "You don't want to cross me . It's so easy to make somebody … shall we call it … non-existent ."
