A fixed, 100-word length is a challenge. This story arrived in my head almost fully formed, but when I’d written it, I knew it could have only one title.
‘B’ Movie Plot
Dashing off the curb, the teenager ripped open the car door and jumped into the passenger seat. He aimed a small caliber semi-automatic at the driver.
Al Marino was unperturbed. “Jacking cars, kid? That’s no way to make a living. Know who I am? I could use someone like you.”
“Pull around the corner,” the young man said.
“Sure, kid.” Marino turned the luxury sedan and stopped. “You’re making a mistake.”
“No mistake. I ain’t no ‘jacker. This is for my sister you got hooked on smack. Now she’s a ’ho’.”
Marino thought the kid wouldn’t shoot.
He was wrong.
