Catch up with chapters 1-7 (I fixed the links so you can follow the story back to here)

Chapter 8

“Anything for you. Which one do you want?”

“Bring me the green one,” (I’m horrible with names) “the one with the steering wheel on the right. And bring the one you like best. I’ll mail you my key to the garage. He works all day so feel free to stop by anytime.”

I knew Dempsey loved his collector cars. He never drove them. Just collected. In a week, two of his precious beings would be here. Take my bank account and I’ll take your cars, bastard.

I knew this was just the beginning.

Read chapter 9 “Dead Threat”.

This is a continuation of an experiment. It’s hard to believe this is the 7th week! Each week there is a 100 word short story photo prompt challenge posed by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. My challenge to myself is to connect these photos into one seamless story. Click the blue frog to read other stories inspired by this photo.

  2. Good for you, being so brave and not making the narrator know the makes/models/years of the cars. 🙂 My husband is big on collectible cars, too, and I know he’d demand to know the details. 🙂


    • In the previous chapter her husband cleaned out her bank account so stealing the cars was payback. No doubt he’ll be pissed and try for his own revenge. But she’s holding a trump card that he’s forgotten about 🙂

  5. Very clever idea to connect the different pictures, but quite a challenge too. Really enjoyed the story, and the line about having all this time on your hands was especially great.
