The Dead Body

“Alfred, I said to turn to the right, not left!”

“How can you be so sure it was a dead body when it was so dark outside?”

“Alfred, I know a dead body when I see one, and my flashlight was working just fine.”

“Maybe you just got scared because you couldn’t get your car started right away and your imagination started to run away with you!”

“Nothing ran away with me, Alfred, and I’ll prove it to you because I see it over there by that old trash bin.”

“I see the body and I was right, your imagination did run away with you because it’s a discarded mannequin and she has beautiful hair!”  Alfred said as he laughed hysterically.

    • Me too! I can understand how it could have looked human in the dark with just a small flashlight and the sudden shock of finding something like that. Thank you for reading and commenting.


  1. ok… (but my compliment is)… is it a mannequin or is it a dead body. (Recently read about ‘unreliable narrators’ and so, maybe Alfred is the one in denial, not the woman/other character!*)

    it is a woman, right?


  2. What are they squeamish? Don’t just guess, check! You may be in time to save their life. If it is a mannequin then see if it is usable, your wife might like it!
