Fishing Buddies

“Harve?”

“What?”

“You seen Winston lately?”

“Yeah.”

“I ain’t seen him in a week.”

“Bastard.  Borrowed fifty bucks.  Said he’d settle when his check came in.”

“He’s been having tough times since Clara passed.”

“Mebee.  Don’t look to get that fifty back.”

“He might come up with it.”

“Not likely.”

“Well, anyway, I ain’t seen him.”

“Sommich had the balls to ask me to take him fishing.”

“You’re the only one has a boat.”

“Fifty bucks!”

“Oooh!  Got something big!  Get the boat closer…  Don’t wanna break this rod…  Wait…  It’s coming… Oh. My. God!  It’s Winston!”

“Yeah. I know.”

  1. Such a terrible crime, revealed in no time.

    Fantastic! With so few words, you got my brain to produce an entire crime story that would be enough for a film on the cinema screen for 1.5 hours.

    I really liked this!
