RE: Looking for 100 word stories

Today's one reminded me of this song:





(One of my favorite bands - for those who don't speak Spanish, it is about... well... pretty much what the story is about.)

RE: Looking for 100 word stories

Here's another one.


Jerome’s well-ordered life is shattered when he discovers Sam – the man he thought he’d killed – is alive and wants retribution. Worried what Sam might do, he hires an assassin.

When Sam discovers that Julie, his wife, is having an affair with Jerome, he’s devastated, tells Julie to go, and speeds-up his plan to bring about Jerome’s downfall.

Julie, who’s unaware that her lover tried to kill her husband and left him disabled, starts to remove her belongings from their house, and retrieve her own data from Sam’s PC. She stumbles upon a computer file called Jerome. She opens it. ‘Oh my God,’ she says. ‘I’ve been sleeping with the man who tried to kill my husband.’

Sam escapes the assassin’s bullet, Jerome’s arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder, and Julie begs Sam for forgiveness. He looks at her, nods, and says, ‘Okay, but we’re over. There’s no going back.’

RE: Looking for 100 word stories

Here's my next effort.

The man towered over his victim, a long knife in his hand. Beads of sweat had started to form on his brow. He wiped each hand in turn on his trousers to ensure a firm grip on the weapon.

He breathed, then brought down his blade with alarming force. The knife slashed through the flesh, connecting the nose to the vacant grin of his target. The man swore and angrily thrust the knife into the mess of a head before him, right up to its hilt.

He turned and called, 'We're going to need another pumpkin!'

Will be doing so, Rosen - I just need to think of a title. The only one I can think of is Pumpkin which kind of ruins the story Wink
