A Short Story – The Package, Part 3.

Here’s the 3rd instalment of the short story I’m attempting to write in 100 word shots, all part of my friend, Lily Childs’ Friday Prediction.

If you missed the previous instalments they’re here:

Part 1.
Part 2.

This weeks words were: mangle, penalty and dice.  Here goes…

The Package, Part 3.

“So, you’re telling me that she got away, even though you took Tony Spencer out of the picture?”

Frankie ‘Howard’ Jones placed his gold dice on the table and looked up at the man standing in front of him.

“Sorry boss, she just disappeared into the crowd…”

Frankie slammed his fist onto the table, the dice bouncing into the air.

“Very sloppy, John, and you know the penalty for sloppy work?”

“Boss, it won’t happen again.”

The mangle press that Frankie kept in the basement was no stranger to killing.

“Find her!”

“Yes, boss.”

  2. Thanks, Liam. Don't know how long it'll end up being but I'll work at it.

  4. John's future looks pretty dicey. He may be penalized by mangling.

  5. Madam Z, :-)I'm hooked, Dave.
