…but you need cash… —>///100WCGU #159///


– Ted’s words came out as a whisper as the two of them stood there, head to head, as if hypnotized by the beautifully carved handle of the knife… sticking out of a man’s chest, his Hawaiian shirt drenched in blood. Extreme heat alert was in effect for a few days now, and the merciless sun was no help to make decision … About half a meter from his motionless arm was an wallet, a pile of twenties peeking out out of it, practically asking to be picked up…
The young man looked up at his friend’s face.
– No, Max. I can’t just take it from a dead man…

  1. You’ve painted a good word picture with your 100 words and added tension and intrigue. Well done.

    • thank you 🙂 I wrote first thoughts that came to me after reading the prompt, and as I am a mystery-loving person – no wonder that this is what it was 😀

  2. Blood curdling indeed! Thank you so much for joining this week’s 100WCGU. It has left me with questions which for me is the sign of a great piece!

    • thank you so much 😀 I enjoy the 100WCGU, and was happy to get the reminding tweet as it is only second time I wrote something for this challenge and I tend to forget stuff 😀 😀 😀

  3. Very good. Max should quote the next Pirates of the Caribbean film title: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
    Ted will then respond, “Have you learned nothing from CSI, NCIS, Bones etc?”
