Weekend Writing Prompt — Bite Me

The detective thrust a photo of the girl in Tony’s face. “Do you know her? And don’t you dare have the temerity to lie to me. Take stock of your life, Tony. Your answer could be pivotal in this case. If you cooperate, I’ll offer you a clean slate. My philosophy is you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours. So?”

Tony looked at the detective and said, “Bite me.”

(Exactly 69 words)


Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “temerity.”

Also for these daily prompts: Word of the Day Challenge (thrust), My Vivid Blog (girl), Weekly Prompts (stock), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (answer), Your Daily Word Prompt (pivotal), The Daily Spur (cooperate), Ragtag Daily Prompt (clean slate), and E.M.’s Random Word Prompt (philosophy).

      Thanks, Christine. Somehow the combination of words just seemed to write the story.
