The alley

Friday Fictioneers

It’s Wednesday and our sparkling gem of a host Rochelle Wisoff- Fields over at FF has a new prompt for us to ponder on and come up with a short story 🙂

 

THE CHALLENGE:

Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and end. (No one will be ostracized for going a few words over the count.)

Here come my 100 words(excluding the title).

The alley

 

Scouring the place, one evening we chanced upon this alleyway.

With its weird ramps, it was clearly meant for unhurried pedestrians.

So, it did not surprise us to find it deserted even at that time.

We smiled.

It was perfect for our plan.

Next night we left our car at the corner, hauling the heavy sack between us.

Reaching a suitable spot, we lowered our package deftly.

It squelched.

We left quickly.

Next day’s newspaper headlines screamed, “Mafia Kingpin Carlos‘s body found in deserted alley. Police baffled while city celebrates.”

We flew out to the next city that needed cleaning.

  1. I really like that the end came as a surprise for me — the mystery of what was going on kept building. Great job giving out just a bit at a time. And what a payoff at the end!
