Friend Request - new short story by David Wailing
Nick Brady gets a dozen friend requests a day. Like most people in 2022, these are handled by his auto, digitally organising his entire life.
But this friend request is from an anonymous stranger, whose relationship status claims he’s dating Larissa Brady. Nick’s wife.
It’s a mistake. It must be. Nick and Larissa are hosting a tenth anniversary party, a happy celebration of a steady marriage. But what if his auto is right, and his wife is having an affair with one of the guests?
How well does Nick know his online friends? And how many have dirty secrets, that only their autos could expose?
Friend Request is a 20,000 word short story, set ten years in the future. It is part of the Auto series which also includes my short stories Relationship Status and Timeline, but can be read as a standalone tale.
Friend Request is available to buy as a Kindle ebook for 77p!
