One Toke Over the Line

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 words

Galen watched as Henrietta moved the insect in circles as she spun her threads of death. He was amazed at how fast she worked and the pitch she was putting into her efforts.

“Getting done?” He called to the Widow in Black.

“Yes, Galen. I should have it all wrapped up in a minute.”

Ignoring the horrible pun, Galen continued. “That’s a bit different than usual.”

“Yeah, I’m rolling a roach.”

“But, that’s not…” Galen trailed off. He did not even know where to start this one. After her last big failure to search the web, he just stayed away.

“An Enigma”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Detective Joel looked at the area of the wreck. Thousands of small plastic balls, short dowel rods, tiny dice, petite cups, slips of paper, bits of string, and other assorted items were scattered all around the area. The overturned truck nearby read “Olsen’s Novelties.” His cell phone rang.

“Yes, Chief.”

“Well, how’s it going?”

“Well, Sir. Just have a few things to work out.”

Here it comes…

“Well, out with it, Son. You said in your initial report that this one would be a tough one. Something about a thousand puzzles to solve.”

Oh how he loved his work, sometimes…

“All’s Fair”

By Scott L Vannatter – December 7, 2014

Sandra watched as Joel left Michelle and walked into his apartment; she especially watched how he looked at Michelle as they kissed goodbye.

She wanted that affection so very much and was willing to take…every step necessary.

Sandra opened the canister she had purchased from Gilda and removed a large chunk of the ill-smelling creme so she could mix it with the hairs she had “borrowed” from Sandra’s comb.

Rubbing the awful mix into a lotion-like substance, Sandra rubbed it all over her hands, face, hair, and even under her clothing, feeling a definite tingle throughout the process.

Standing behind the corner of a building, she changed clothing into something she had again “borrowed” at Michelle’s and walked toward the apartment building as a “new” woman.

“The Marian Kind”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 words

Marian walked outside the library and over to the man lying on the grass.

“Sir?”

“Ma’am, is this Iowa?”

“Yes,” she looked strangely at him.

“And, are you Marian, the librarian?”

She nodded.

“I am here to start a boys’ band in your town!”

“And, I suppose you graduated from Gary, Indiana?”

“Why yes, I did indeed!  I’m Professor Har…”

“Yeah, yeah.  Beat it, Hill.  I will tell you the same thing I told the guy in tights with the bow and arrows last week:  wrong Marian, wrong time…stupid wormhole. ”

She walked away leaving the man looking after her…

Dance Fever

By Scott L Vannatter – November 25, 2014 (150 Words)

“Dance as if no one is watching!” Stephanie yelled at George as they entered the disco hall. George tried to take in the multitude of people gyrating in motion. George wanted to run out, but he really wanted Stephanie to like him.

He stepped out on the floor with her and closed his eyes. His feet began to tap and he began to forget all those around him.

After a bit, George felt a hand on his waist, then her other hand crept just a bit lower on his backside. His mind was going wild. Stephanie was enjoying this, too! He looked forward to the rest of the evening.

When the set of songs finished and a slow dance began, George opened his eyes to try and dance with Stephanie to the romantic song. With a start he realized that the woman he was now with was not Stephanie, who he saw in tears leaving the building.
