WonHundred Word Wednesday: What they say

Whew... this one was hard for me. First it took me forever to decide on what direction to go. And even then it took a while to confine my thoughts to only 100 words. Anyway, without further ado... my 100 word story:

He handed me the tiny velvet box as we sat in his Porsche.

“You know what they say: Good things come in small packages.”

I opened the box and was amazed to see the sparkling diamond inside. Feelings of relief and pure joy soared through me. I succeeded. The months spent in constant efforts to win his affection, his trust, were worth the prize. My employer would be pleased, very pleased.

“Yes,” I agreed, thinking of the briefcases full of cash I would earn in exchange for the information I would pass on. “But better things come in big ones.”

Let me know what you think in the comments, and as always, be sure to check out the other writer's stories. (I've read them already, they are great and all take such different directions!)
