No lead in or exposition, just a song, more Silas and Olive, and a request to go see my sometimes writing partner, Tara aka @Tara_R from http://www.thinspiralnotebook.com. She chose today’s 100 word tune, a jazzy number from Melody Gardot called Worrisome Heart.
Here’s my 100.
Silas swallowed, thought about Olive, then his hand shook. His finger was close to the trigger. He dropped it on the ground. Archie smiled. Kenny and Roscoe ran next to him, but Archie stopped them with one sentence.
“I know what it’s like to be surrounded by people with troubling ways and worrisome hearts.”
He stepped toward Silas. The gun was equal distance from both men.
“Everybody wants the short cut get to where they’re going. We’re not like that.”
Silas stared at the money in his other hand, then dropped it to the garage floor, too.
