This is my first Friday Fictioneers post. I hope I have done everything correctly 🙂
I call it The Criminal, it is 100 words and inspired by the lovely photo by Gah.
A full moon shone on me like a spotlight.
That pointed finger from the heavens was all that tied me to the crime.
Still I obsessively scanned the street below my bedroom window.
Still I jumped at every passing siren.
I wondered if they had found her body yet.
Tucked away so expertly from scrutinizing eyes.
If they caught me I would be thrown in jail.
But I stood there, paralyzed.
Crippled by nerves.
A free man too scared to leave that very spot beside the window.
I hoped that they’d find me soon.
So my prison sentence could end.
