Saturday Centus #31: Family Drama, Part VI



It was mid-morning by the time Kat gave up waiting for Russ's call. She couldn't afford more delay, so with renewed determination she studied the dead body.

I guess I'll have to hide you in the garage. If there's room.”

It was a little less creepy dealing with the situation while talking aloud.

This might be harder than I thought. Look at all this crap!”

Then it dawned on her. Moving the bin of tangled up holiday lights, Kat lifted the lid of the ancient chest freezer. More crap. But moveable crap.
It wasn't long before the space was ready and waiting for the victim.



It's Saturday Centus.  By now you know the drill, 100 words, don't mess with the prompt (in bold italic), link up at Jenny's.  I'm challenging myself to connect all my stories, regardless of the prompt.  So go check out the other stories, and add yours to the linky.

The story continues...

You are very good at linking all of these up :) It's going to take quite a while to tell the whole story at a rate of 100 words a week though!

Very good--I just wonder how long you can continue with this story. I'm amazed and hope you publish it in one long post when it's done.

oh yes...a freezer chest is a great choice...just be sure to chain it if you try dropping it in the lake...err...

Cheryl said...

Loving how this is unfolding. I think this is my favorite piece so far. For some reason it struck me funny. Then Brian's all-knowing comment set me on edge. Really, Brian? And how do you know?

I wondered how you would be able to weave this prompt into your story, and you did it beautifully! I anxiously await each new installment, you are so clever the way you tie these all together. Can't wait til next week! Kat

You weave so effortlessly, and I am loving the continuing saga.

You do an amazing job at building suspense, while inducing fear.

Bravo on this one that you could come up with a way to continue the story, ha. I don't know about the freezer though, the dead person always seems to be found LOL. I guess I'll see ;0)

Great job! Another seamless transition! You are brilliant! I would never dare try this. But you pull it off every week! We're so not worthy!!

Awesome!
