Yeah Write #71: Justice Comes Calling ( #amwriting #flashfiction )


His body collapsed to the sound of piano music playing from a stereo. Jennai’s crimson pot holder sported a smoking bullet hole. Who’d’ve thought a casserole guise would work?

Jennai propped a typed note on the man’s signature, lapel, single lily tinged with human blood: “Test the paintings.”

    I loved the bullet hole in the pot holder and the signature lapel lily, but I was a little confused by the note.

      I kind of slapped it together and didn’t have time to refine it. It was supposed to imply that he was a bad dude and the evidence was in the paintings.

    Love the story – saw your reply to the previous comment. Time constraints are awful, aren’t they? You have an extra comma between signature and lapel. Good work, despite being a rushed version!

    I really like the detective/mystery feel you evoked with the smoking bullet hole, the mysterious note, and the blood stained lily. It felt like it was a bigger story that was squeezed into the tight word count though. I’d love to see what an expanded version of this looks like on the Fic|Po weekly grid.

    I just loved the images here! I was very confused as well with the last line but totally understand that you were rushed. Been there! Well done for putting something together.

    Slightly hard to understand but good composition of all three prompts.

    I like that you didn’t try to squeeze too much in – you gave just enough to demonstrate the conflict.

    Very intriguing! That opening sentence is fantastic.
