PHOTO PROMPT – © Adam Ickes
Firstly, I’d like to apologise for the fact most of you didn’t receive a comment from me last week. I’d written quite a few before I realised they weren’t getting through. If any of you did get a comment once, you may have received it up to 3 times. I know Rochelle seemed to get one eventually in her spam folder.
I’m not sure if the problem is fixed, so any thoughts on how to correct this would be welcome. If you get a like from me with no comment following, you’ll know I still have a problem.
Anyway, here goes with this week’s story:
“It’s here. The money?”
“I give you the painting, there’s nothing to stop you sailing away with both.”
Andretti pulled a gun.
Sweat ran down his temples and his hand shook.
“If you’re messing me…”
Buoys bobbed over the numerous lobster pots fishermen had planted earlier in the evening, white, orange but mostly pink.
“I always think how pretty those pricks of colour are.”
Julian threw Andretti a mobile phone. “I make it back off this jetty alive with the money, I’ll text.”
As he sent, ‘The Pink One,’ he chuckled, “That should keep him busy.”
