This little piece was inspired by Lily Childs Friday Prediction a few weeks ago. I’m thinking of turning it into a much longer piece and just wanted a bit of feedback if you thought the initial idea is up for it. Let me know either way.
It was simply called Cropper, but that may change.
Detective Charlotte stared out of the window into the car park of the station, his hands behind his back holding three pieces of paper.
He turned to the man sat at the desk and placed the papers in front of him.
“What are these supposed to mean? They look like a child’s drawings.”
“They are,” the man giggled, drawing invisible circles on the desk top with his bony fingers.
“Mr Cropper,” the detective said, “Are you aware of the implication of your actions if we don’t find the boy?”
“Boy, singular? Who said there was only one?” Cropper laughed.
