Suspect - A short story written in five minutes

in freewrite •  last year  (edited)



“Can you tell us anything about the suspect? Color of his skin, maybe? Height?” The officer asked.

“He was around 6 feet tall, maybe an inch or two smaller, but we wore a mask and long sleeves, so I don’t know about the skin color, sorry.”

“It was a male, then?” I nodded. “Are you positive about that?”

“I don’t think any girl could build that amount of muscle,” I chuckled.

He gave me the look and the smile on my face immediately vanished. “Anything else you remember about the suspect? Was he limping, had a tick, or anything like that?”

“Now that you mention it, he did have abnormally large feet.” He just stared at me, waiting for me to continue. “He wore black Chuck Taylors with a white sole–or at least what once was a white sole. They’ve been hardly black and white at all and I could see them tearing up in all places.”

“What else did he wear? Do you remember his clothing?”

“He wore a black three striped tracksuit, you know, the one of which the stripes of the upper half match perfectly with the lower half, and a black ski mask on his face. He also wore black gloves, but I couldn’t tell if they were leather or not.”

“Is that all?” I nodded. “Thank you for your intel. We’ll stay in touch.”

The prompt was:

"Describe your shoes"

Forget that idea of a company of ours - ... Or wait. We need to launder money somewhere. >;)
