Today’s crime flash fiction

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.
