The opening sentence for the June 23rd Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner: It was really dark last night, but I’m pretty sure this is the place.” Please use this sentence (or this thought) somewhere in your flash.

Covered Bridge

Medal Box

“Do you think they are still here?”  Xavier spoke with a strident voice.

“I hope so!  It looks like some boards were replaced.”  Logan remarked.

“Let’s look and see,” Xavier chimed in.

“No, we have to wait until it’s dark and no one will be crossing the covered bridge.  We do not want to end up in jail again and be there for life!”

It was 3 a.m. when they returned.

“Do you remember which board we put them under?”  Xavier asked.

“I’m sure this is the place. It will be under this board.” Xavier said in a high-pitched voice.

“Look!” They squealed as they lifted a medal box.

“Now, we can really get rid of these guns,” Logan said with satisfaction.

They had driven a few miles down the road when two policemen pulled them over. The policemen detained them until another police officer came with a search warrant.

Xavier and Logan were officially charged with the murder of two teenage boys that happened five years earlier.

Special cameras  installed around the covered bridge made it possible to see Xavier and Logan retrieve the guns.

  1. They figured that eventually the box would be found when the board needed replacing. Some were replaced but not the one the box was hidden under. They should have completely disposed of them, not hide them . There’s a story behind that but not enough word count to cover it. Thank you for reading. 😊
