Saturday Centus: Family Drama Part VIII


Tired, frustrated, and if she was honest with herself, scared, Kat closed the garage and took one more look at the freezer with the body stashed. Good, it still looks a mess in there, he'll be safe. He wasn't going anywhere. But she was: Retail therapy. To forget her current predicament for a while in the crowds of Christmas shoppers cramming the mall seemed like a great idea.
Passing through the food court she was startled by a familiar voice, “What was he thinking? OMG! Elves are soooo 2009!”  Wait. Couldn't be. Could it? Turning around she saw him. What in the on earth was he doing here?

Saturday Centus again. You know the drill: 100 words around the prompt (not included in the count) and in bold italics above. Link up at Jenny's at Off on My Tangent if you want to join. I'm adding an extra twist: connecting all the short stories into one story, told 100 words at a time. And I think Jenny's out to get me...these prompts have been really challenging...

For the previous parts, go here.

I'm a bit behind reading these and I'm wondering, wondering what you're doing with this weeks prompt! You'll totally make it work, though, I know!

Love your clever stories and the fact that it is continuous makes it even more astonishing.

Hope your enjoying a relaxing and restful post-Christmas day!
