Flash Fiction - Unbelievable

This week's 100 word story using the following picture prompt






Unbelievable

The Detective gazed out of the Penthouse Suite, the windows wall to ceiling. 'What a view' he commented. It was a crystal clear day, the water was absurdly still. Serenity reigned supreme.

‘He entered the water there?’ Pointing directly at the centre of the Marina, he quizzed the owner of the property.

She nodded, cigarette in hand, the hand shaking violently.

‘The thing is Marion, the divers have found no evidence of a body, or the boat.’

‘5th call this week, I’ll let myself out.’

‘I know what I saw’ she muttered as she popped open another bottle of red.


Hope you enjoyed it!

  8. Sounds like a good start to a thriller? The amnesia girl kind of thriller. Nice take on the prompt.
