Three-Line Tales — The Walkaway


“Don’t you dare turn around and walk away from me,” Trish said as Charles headed into the cold fog that was rapidly descending over the waterfront.

Trish reached into her purse and pulled out a pistol, aimed it at Charles, and fired.

As Charles turned around in shock and disbelief, Trish yelled out, “my next shot won’t miss, you bastard.”

      But there’s only so much you can say in three lines!

      Good questions. I’d need a few more than three lines to answer them. 😏
