Friday Fictioneers – Walls

6 December, 2013

Thank you dear Rochelle for being the Queen of FriFic! This week’s prompt looks like this:
trespass_randy_mazie-1and if you read on you will find my 100 words:

 

“Excuse me sir…”  The voice loaded the word with the authoritative contempt that is only taught in police colleges. Anthony lifted his finger from the nozzle, lowered the can.

Through the months that the house had been standing empty, Anthony had watched as local kids tried to climb over the high smart walls, force the boarded elegant windows. To him their behaviour was destructive, disrespectful of the property and its history. He had tried to protect the house the only way he now could, with two sprayed words.

“This your house is it sir?” the policeman mocked.

“Not any more.”

  1. Not the answer he was expecting, I’m sure. Nicely done!

  2. And then he lit the match and foom! Right? Good one, RG.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  3. I guess he decided it wasn’t worth the struggle anymore. Sometimes it’s better to walk away. Nice take.

  4. I like the way you slipped in the last line to explain why he was protecting it.
