The Quick and the Deed :: 50 Word Short Story

in fiction •  3 months ago

I've missed out on the last couple weeks of 50 Word prompts offered by the tireless @jayna. One wouldn't think it would be difficult to find time to write 50 words. One would be wrong. Onwards we march!

This time, we are offered the prompt word: "deed"



 

Bill laughed. Being sheriff was easy. He counted the money, then slipped the envelope inside his uniform shirt, looking the other way.

A gunshot. His view changed to a close-up of the street. Footsteps. Someone reached inside his shirt, taking the envelope.

“Ya’ll don’ need dis. Ya’ll be deed soon.”

Haha. Great story, @negativer. Quite a twist on the prompt. Fast as a gunslinger. Crime don't pay.

Fantastic, @negativer!

I feel the need to submit something for @jayna as well.
